Hey Marcus, you're pumping out modules by the dozen, aye? Awesome! :)
I've seen a lot of confusion about 1001 different "news" modules back in my Typo3 days,
and would recommend that you add a short paragraph to the README comparing this module to "blog" (e.g. doesn't have RSS, sidebar widgets, but has straightforward and extensible datamodel etc).
Yep good idea
very good idea! and a good reference when explaining to clients (that are technical enough) and other developers that might maintain this once it's done with the initial built.
