We have to think about it and what would be the best solution to this 
problem. I'm sure we can trust Olivier, as the author of DXNet, to solve 
it. Maybe by allowing the users change themselves the text commands in 
the Alt-T window, or by letting WT to self-adapt the commands after a DX 
cluster type recognition process (interesting development...) ?

I'm absolutely sure it is always a *bad* idea to fork standards without 
maintaining a back compatibility  ;-)  But it's sometimes easier said 
than done.
