I should send my contribution in a while.Meanwhile, here is something to read.

And here is the thread:

I did not know that discussion in Oekonus as it was in the german list (I only read the Englisn list). Fortunately, a big part of it is in English and reading it is certainly useful. The Dutch comrades should be able to read the german mails...
