Right, good remark, though making it gives you even more credit ^^

Heh, thanks for willingness at least!

Yeah, there are easy ways to check the result fits SVN HEAD.  Checking
older branches and tags are a bit harder, yet doable, but as you say
yourself, it's less sensitive.  And let's be honest, I could be the bad
guy here too... ^^

I can't understand this, it's soooo selfish ;(  (just kidding)

Actually I feel would prefer it to be next weekend because it's sooner,
and as said in another mail, I'm not sure we really need more than you,
Enrico and I to complete it.

Let's wait for Enrico's answer (if he's still on that ML, hehe!) and see
when he got enough spare time to spend on it.
