hey Christopher,

that's about my conclusion aswell. In the BE it really looks nice
But it simply doesn't follow the TYPO3 standard very well for installing
this as a FE extension (insert plugin, config and ready...)

If the snowflake guys can chime in it would be great, but for now
I will try something else first before I try to kill myself making  
this work.

I also tried this : http://www.thomaskieslich.net/de/blog/t3post/2009/03/24/interessante-infos-zum-t3blog.html
(My german is gans mal) but also that didn't juice op the site
