That's (I think) the least we as "end-users" can do -
our (internal) list of issues grew a bit over the last year
(with some of them already mentioned here and there on
the mailing list) and Jan Braun also found a couple
of further points while writing the detailed notes.

Not yet (after sending the mail I was happy to have
that finally out, and since then I have been
swamped with other stuff).
I will do it right now.

That was our impression as well - we just had a brief look
at some, but got lost quickly.

Travis, there is really no need to say sorry at all!
I only hope that some of the more crucial ones
(`Pause() and Windows`, `Plotting one point` and the
`Labeling and titles`)
get fixed soon enough that they could be included
in the next Enthon release (not the upcoming one)
- we are using scipy.xplt extensively in our computational physics course
and it would be really nice if the students could get
a version with less bugs than last year ;-)
Maybe Michiel de Hoon has some ideas on all this.
