OK, last one I promise ;-)

Here you go with a working master list and autospeed feature. If the entries 
have been created enter "a" and it will auto fill-in all the entries it has a 
master entry for without waiting for user input. It skips over existing 
entries. It only pauses on 'none' entries. You could even dummy that by 
having a blank icon and adding a master entry for it.

I'll give it a few days, and if all is well I'll see if it can be added to 
contrib or something.

I've compressed it so Isaac doesn't come after me with a big stick :-)
