I have never tried that (as was perhaps evident from the result.)

I will reply only to acknowledge that I've noted your 
complaint, and also note that this is the first concrete
feedback I can remember since posting it on Jungerl two
years ago -- thank you! (: The fact that builder.erl hasn't
been updated in two years is not so much a testimony to the
quality of its code as it is an indication that noone, 
including me, has used it enough to bother.

My daughter turned 2 last Saturday. That's my excuse for 
not having run any hobby projects that make use of builder
during the last couple of years.  (:
