Wow - you've been working hard.

Sounds fine in principle to me; if people complain then they obviously
have the sheets and can help verify / update / replace the
information :-) If we were paranoid we could add a boolean flag to hide
these and complicate the UI to allow them to be shown: but prolly better

Sounds like a great approach, it'd be great to link a wiki page with a
description of how to create & verify such things.
Another thing that interests me is that parsing the configuration,
despite all Stephan's good work in configmgr to speed it up, still takes
real time and space: say 4% of our startup and a chunk of RAM. If we
look at the sizes of our config using a simple:
du -k -a | sort -n
We can see that the Labels.xcu is the single largest blob of data that
we have installed ;-) and consumes 390Kb (around 20%) of our 1.8Mb of
main.xcd that we parse during startup.
That makes me wonder whether either:
a) we can/should split out the Labels tree until
it is actually needed / used with some configmgr trick
b) use a different format / chunk of code for label
Longer term thoughts on that much appreciated :-) [ I can just imagine
an android device belting it's little mind out parsing all that stuff
just to get rid of it again ;-].
Nice work !
