Correction: Issue 30 was resolved prior to Last Call.  It was 
subsequently re-opened.

You are asking that ISSUE-30 be re-resolved before Jonas and/or Matthew 
have completed their proposal(s).  Proposals that, if successful, could 
cause ISSUE-30 to be once again reopened should it have been re-resolved 
in the interim.

Can you explain the importance of what might very well be a temporary 
resolution of this issue would be?
