Short sidenote on GRASS: I have written a script "v.in.edbs_shape"
which allows to separate the SHAPE-files (resulting from the
proprietary EDBS converters) into the map layers ("folien").
Works nice :-) and needs the current v.in.shape from David Gray (find
in GRASS CVS).
So "simply" the EDSB-SHAPE converter is missing...

I agree! This would be another reason to convince people,
