I like the idea, really. Unfortunately, it is too inefficient. Strings are
flexible, but too slow for this. Int32 is not felxible enough because you
cannot define codes that say what they do (like "pppoe/ethernet").
There must be a better solution....
Anyway, I want to produce some code now, so I will not write many mails in
that time.
