Ok, diving into it!
I will inform the changes I make so that you can review them. First will be
to replace the echo statements at the end of each block of code with
COM_output.. ;)

Also I notice that files from the latest 1.7.0b1 and from the repository
have the heading 'Geeklog 1.6' in the opening comments block... is this
something wrong with me or has it not been updated?
