I'd really appreciate if we would start acting like a WG again (*), and 
stop the "I split it out-I put it back in" circus.

48 hours are simply not sufficient to find the best way to make a big 
change like that, and the fact that the first "attempt" proved unpopular 
doesn't prove at all it can't be done.

Best regards, Julian
