slowly, but surely. I do have a running version of the infra, without 
all the required best & whistles yet. Anyway, I'm not 100% sure that 
current drive configuration layout will stay as it is... so, it may not 
be urgent to implement this (we anyway need something in place until all 
the file I/O rewrite has been done)
