I would like to reiterate there is NO Magma code in the TMB. Also, I don't get it, what is the "hassle"?
If the community likes the TMB, I'll volunteer to help with whatever work is needed for 3.9 incorporation, including removing/renaming whatever methods you want.

Based on your recommandation, I installed the TMB on my 3.9 image.
It's a bit of a hassle to see all those 'ma' methods from magma, but
the functionality of the TMB is brilliant. It integrates very nicely
into the existing tools, and the way it works fits very nicely with
how the message browser already works in the standard image. I really
like it, thanks for your tip!
I nominate adding the TMB into the default image, what work is needed
to be done to get that in 3.9?
