Yes, neither last call comments, but comments on the comments. No action
required on either.

I could not be so cruel!  I think you and Martin must have the patience of Job,

there needs to be another review...   But I guess it is because the definition
and usage of characters is the most fundamental issue.

Cheers
Rick
