So you won't accept my harsh reality of what will happen with Wichert's
proposal but are happy the way he puts it? Interesting..

Besides, I thought out first priority was to create a completly free

grounds that it substantialy inconveniences our users and wastes resources
that could otherwise be applied to benifiting the distribution.
