Dear Franck,

I would like to say thanks again (now in public) for all your work 
and also for TDWG's support.

These tools are an enormous help in creating XML files that are 
crucial for TAPIR (Javier was quite right about this when he 
suggested this kind of development during the last TAPIR meeting). 
No one deserves to edit XML by hand...

I'll find some time during the next weeks to update the network 
builder's guide making references to these new tools.

Many thanks,
