Yes i think you're absolutely right that a complex system like WPKG could make
people believe that it sometimes does something which was not intended. Just due
to the fact that the user did not know about any effect of its acting.

Well, I think the topic here is well-clarified now and I hope Thomas is fine
with the answer and knows about the intended effects of using WPKG and probably
also about some "side-effects" he might experience.

Thanks for the discussion ;-)
