I worked over the weekend on various things. First, I fixed darcsum.el to strip/convert ANSI character sequeces, since several people complained. Thanks to Jose Antonio Ortega Ruiz and Matthieu Lemerre for reporting this. Please darcs pull to grab the latest changes.

Then, I spent some more time on Kashmir/Elusion and added a “Do What I Mean” mode. For example, instead of

^entries.each{
  ^recent?.true?{NEW}
  ^body
  ^time.with{^day/^month/^year}
}

You can now write (assuming you use Elusion):

^entries{
  ^recent?{NEW}
  ^body
  ^time{^day/^month/^year}
}

Elusion will then figure out on it’s own what you want to do (If there is an #each, iterate. If it’s true, just call the block. Else yield self to the block.) Also, you can now pass a block to Kashmir#expand to automatically create an Elusion.

Now, there is a restartable exception library to be coded…
