OT but I think that at some point it will have to use another GUI.
Either GTK-anything or wxWindows or ..... now back to the topic at hand.

The above would be by far the best option. Copying and pasting in your
survex data creates then two copies of survex data that can get
out-of-sync when you update the survex data.

PS. I have been distracted lately and havent been able to get back to
playing with Therions metapost and ASF/UIS cave symbols. I intend to get
back onto this in Dec/Jan as Im taking annual leave so will have time. I
would like to modify the metapost so that cave symbols can be easily
constructed with just a bit of metapost knowledge and pulled in at run
time rather than needing to be there when compiled.
