Code repository

There is already a 'msc' (misc) library in jungerl.
Why not put single modules there and add html documentation
to msc/doc. This way it will automatically be visible under

It would also be possible to create erlmerge packages to
be uploaded to (requires some adjustments so
that single modules can be separated into different packages).

Btw: Has anyone (apart from myself) tried erlmerge ?
Personally, I find it extremely useful... ;-)

Cheers, Tobbe
