Hi Steffen,

big +1

> 2) Field for defining TS same easy as the Title while mapping.
> 3) htmlentities-funkction optional to switch of

4) Being able to specify width/height of a fixed-sized picture (w/o 
having to modify the DS and loosing the change after another change from 
GUI), could be merged into 2)

5) Advanced picture options:
    a) max width/height with ratio
    b) click-enlarge option (I find it very difficult to achieve in TS!)
        i) to full-width
       ii) to given max height/width

6) Store the DS XML into a file for easy versioning (SVN, ...) and load 
with something like

<datastructure src="FILEADMIN:templates/mysite/typo3/ds.xml" />

7) A button to get a list of TypoScript path we defined associated to 
the field name (would be very handy)

8) Is the "set" button in header mapping still needed? If yes, then 
could be merged with the save button

9) Checkboxes next to TOs which would allow all templates to be "save 
and return"'ed quickly (when the template has been updated in a 
nobrainer way). Same for FCE.

10) Quick "add field" with standard definitions such as
    a) breadcrumb ("map this to ...") => lib.menu.breadcrumb
    b) title => lib.page.title
    c) lastUpdate => lib.page.lastUpdate

Best done with an external file definition (e.g., file tv_mapping.xml 
when present in root of the template directory) where one could define 
his own list of "quick fields". Would be perfect when creating multiple
