Thank you guys! I learned a lot from all you guy's input and like Ross
suggests; by getting started things get more tangible. (Also, with the
good help of krytarik, it gets fun :) ) And i have to say it would be
awesome to see you get your hands dirty with us, Ralf. Knowing your
console-fu and you rocketmouse science skills ;)

I saw Ross added the 2 audio packages to the seeds \o/
And i took care of 2 first entries for graphics. The seed part is
actually very easy, once you get a grip on the terminology that is.
(seeds? meta? :D) I will try my best to document my progress and compile
it for the wiki.
