Hi!

Just to give some feedback on org-drill. I had a look into writing something
similar some time ago, but never got around learning enough emacs lisp.

I like the flexibility of org-drill and org-drill over-all.
I think you are right, when saying it is unfortunate to use 4 and 5 as synonyms
for "I just know it, leave me alone forever".

What I really don't like is the amount of whitespace in spanisch.org, the
example file..
May be that could be trimmed down? Or is it just your personal liking?

I couldn't handle (and wouldn't want to handle) such formatting by hand.

Anyway, thank you for providing org-drill!
