Hi Bert,

ahh, this was for stupid me! Great, now (I hope :) I got it.

So it's about Juan's work (which perhaps can be combined with Pavel's  
work, somehow, or perhaps not: who knows).

For me the speculation now has and end. All that remains is, I will wait  
for the respective announcement(s), they both will want us to test their  
good work.

And I'm happy to see that Edgar offered his support to Juan.

Thank you all for the constructive conversation, may the fruits follow!
