Hello Martin,

we originally planned to do the code cleanup in the next two weeks. But it's not shure 
when we will really find the time. In general we plan to use the TYPO3 4 CGL in future. 
The most non CGL compliant code is from me because i did'nt knew the CGLs when i started 

So if you want to take the task i would gladly accept such a patch. We just have to 
coordinate the timeframe that no big changes are sceduled during that time. Since you will 
change nearly every file in caretaker the patch will otherwise create a lot of conflicts.

Regards Martin
