Oh, I failed to notice your mail when I wrote the one I've just sent. Since you're fine with 100, let's go for it; I just needed a fix to be committed before the upload (which should happen in a few hours), that's why I was going for a temporary decision. All the better if you're fine with the suggested new value. :) Thanks! KiBi.
