Thank you :-)

Obviously, there's no problem. Feedback appreciated.

I ended up with the macros too late (in the night...) to give them a good 
shape. I got some time to collect the crumbs left in my repository thus:

0001-Workaround-for-1-dot-problem.patch: Is the workaround for the 1 dot 
version problem I started hacking from.

NOTE: This is a workaround only, it has some visual glitches on the final 
report (it dumps version 1.5.0 instead 1.5 on notices). All the notes I 
stated previously still apply.

0002-Give-credit-where-credit-is-due.patch: Obviously credits are due to all 
the authors. I used cut-copy-paste-slash too much. Authors name shouldn't 
disappear from the repository if their macros get obsolete. My fault, sorry.

Please rearrage them as you wish.

Have a good day,
