Couldn't be implemented that way for many reasons, but I like the idea.

How about setting up a WiKi to handle this kind of suggestion?

The pros: fast-editing, immediate "share with others" facility.

multiplying URLs (there's already the official docs, this list archives,
the bug & request tracker on Savannah...)

Just give me your feeling about this.

Yeah, point is it introduces sort of complexity. You have a pointer which
drags a cursor which in turn drags your fighters. This is typically the
"developper stuff" which sounds nice but might confuse

Mmm, chaotic charm. I like that term ;)

Thanks for the re-upload of sounds, I got them right this time.
