So how did you create the priv & pub key @ the caretaker_server, then?
only way i can imagine is using components outside the 
EXT-caretaker-context. - just curious.

ACK; your choice;

I'm aware of this fact;

let me rephrase my unanswered statement to two questions:
a) Features/Requests regarding code: Should we use the bugtracker @ fore 
for such suggestions or keep them here?
b) DOCU: Should we add docu-pieces the wiki (like we do in EXT dam) or 
communicate here ?

pls. let me know.
Thanks for your reply anyway, regards Georg
