Just report any issues you have with Colombo - it is alpha software, so 
I do not expect it to be in any way perfect.

I am very open to put in new functionality or split Colombo into two 
tools if that seems better. It might be that my needs are a corner case 
and the more generally applicable solution is different - in fact it 
will be the case, so I am ready to get feedback and find ways to improve it.
