I agree completely, in principle. I remember a (long) while ago
that perl bindings tend to come up too slow with too many
functions, so I am kind of taking it easy in putting in new
functions that do not absolutely need to be there
this may not be a problem anymore (true ? Martin ?).
In any case, I will try to add some query functions that I think
would simplify application bookkeeping.
