Hello Wolfgang,

Already in advance: thank you very much!  With such a module, I can finally
forget really all about LaTeX. Sometimes I still use scrlttr2.cls and at
these moments I swear to write a letter module one day. Now I know, that I
won't need to do this difficult (for me) task.

First, I used lettre.cls (LaTeX class). It has one really great feature:
the vertical spaces are recalculated at every pass, in order to get a last
page filled at least to 50%. Without this, you can easily get a second page
with only the closing and the signature.

Then, for some reason that I forgot, I switched to scrlttr2.cls. And I
patched it to get the same minimum-50%-feature. Unfortunately, this patch is
no more working with recent versions of scrlttr2...

I would welcome such a feature in your module!

Cheers, Peter
