To Andre Renaut:

Yes correct.

To Otto:

You are right, but I have no expertise to do that, although it sounds
easy...I've tried, but I cannot accomplish it...I am trying a similar thing
with Routes, just stripping the code of the things that I do not
need..although that does not seem easy at all for me..I am not good at
sniffing what I need and what not, that's why I was trying to go with
building my own from scratch..

To Jeremy Clarke:

I'll try that

Anyway, thank you all!
