thanks :-)

erm, yes, me too. only as a first step, i simply implemented all options from 
the functions and then wanted to check on the details later. btw, i wished the 
documentation of pwr would be a little more elaborate on stuff like this.

good catch. yes, right now effect sizes can't be negative, i'll try to come up 
with something.

if i take the first road and go astray from the pwr options, i'll probably 
rename "greater" to something like "one sided test (first is greater)". would 
anyone consider it too much a limitation to not being able to use negative 
effect sizes?

absolutely. these calculations are really quick, and in reality you probably 
want to see how your target measure behaves if one of the assumed parameters 
changes, without clicking through a dialog a dozen times.

in this particular case, it would be awesome if i could loop parts of the 
result back to the GUI, right to the control of the target measure, which is 
now greyed out when selected. maybe with a green border or something, so you 
understand that you cannot change it directly.
