Nice work Stefano, ...
Just a little question for the color scheme. The different green shades
are a bit difficult to distinguish. I guess you can note the difference
between the experimental and the unstable ones, but from a first sight
they all look almost uniformously green, and even after a second look,
they kind of make your mind wonder if they are uniform or not, which is
auite head-ache inducing (but granted, i had less than 4 hours sleep
this night :).
