 No way, because any scripts in ../examples should not be used as runable
 scripts and this is _not_ _correct_. I think we want upload it in a good
 shape. ;-)

 I think it is not that difficult to write a small manpage with the content
 of ireminder.pl --help output in man way ;-)

 No, itools is a tool which need the itl lib _not_ vice versa. All runable
 programmes or scripts by the user should be in _/usr/bin_ and all runable
 files should have a manpage.
