I like the idea of Matthews and Kirby
i can implement that as suggested by Mathhews, it will also solve Kirby's problem
and I think Danielle's requirement of easier access to homologies.
The reason the Text does not work is that a Text is only on disk and its char*
is only transient
You can only store in seg a KEY then display name(seg->key_of_homology)
The notion of -Multipmap like -Title in options is excellent i think
more on that in a few days, i ll try to implement that very soon.
