Hi Joachim,

Thanks for all your feedback.  This seems like a reasonable approach to me.  
People can give them a try if they want, and we can see where it takes us.

From your prior email, I presume the next step is to wait for squeeze to be 
released.  Let me know if there is anything else you need in the meantime.

Cheers!  -Tyson
