    Thank you very much. I'd really appreciate if you could send me those
files, and the thesis one. It's not exactly what I'm doing, I deal with
Electron Propagator Theory, but it will certainly be a good reference
material. I already know I'll have to develop my own package, but it'll be
much easier if I have a starting point ;-)
