Yes, that should work with sch-rnd.

Yes, you can have custom attributes and get them printed as floaters. That

It's a bit tricky (because not a common need), but you can also change the

I guess you mean hierarchic design. That's not yet implemented in sch-rnd

(Meanwhile: received your video card, thank you!)
