Ok, that doesn't look too bad.

As given it looks horrible, but with a compact syntax on top (which I see the charter says is going to happen) then it's potentially about the same, as you say.

To some degree, yes. It depends what other things you have to sacrifice to achieve this.

Thank you for the clarifications.
