For me ist the biggest problem with rewrite (besides the encoding
problem), that scripts are in one subdirectory, but calls libraries
from another and this not work. I must copy script to root directory
of rewrite and then I can work with tthem, but after update I must
copy them again. So I use only calimit and harvest_template, the rest
Rewrite works in different way - user-config.py is stored somewhere on
Document_and:Setings\username\... which is not friendly - but only on
win7, on winXP I have this file in root of rewrite :-O
