Hi Giri,

Thank you very much for the review. I will look into this, and file issues
for the problems we don't track yet. I think we should continue most of the
discussion via github issues, but I will also send a reply to this list,
hopefully during this week, concerning scope and design decisions.

Best regards,
Zoltan
