Hi Luc,
I still think that the name could be improved because the current one is
confusing.

My last proposal ("wasAQuoteFrom") got a +1 from Stian and Paul
(although he said he would think of a better name). Nobody else said
anything,
so maybe we should ask the rest of the group on thursday?

Best,
Daniel
