Ok. I understand your point, you're right.

In place of your Greece and Switzerland, my next trips will be to a 
couple of times to France and a couple of weeks in Hong Kong. I hope to 
avoid the trip to Qatar, but not yet sure ;-) . Because of that it may 
take some time, but as soon as I can I will look into the matter by this 
point of view, so that integration in WS implementation becomes 
reasonably smooth.

On the same subject there's another point: currently CDButton still lack 
some features (proper caption handling, for translation and shortcuts), 
so that our dialog buttons wouldn't be translated to the appropriate 
locale, they wouldn't show the underlined character for the shortcut, 
and they wouldn't react to shortcut key.
That's another point in my TODO list.

Kind regards,
