Back to work.

It would be really good, if the task numbers stay the same in MSP and OP. To my knowledge, OP was one of the few Mac scheduling programs that achieved that in the past.
The backdating problem I had as well, this 'feature' of MSP cracks me up all the time. ;)
We really should propagate the XML format more. If I ever will be in the position to push for a schedule exchange format, I will push for XML of course.
