Hmmm, k.  I can understand the time consumption thing.  So if I understand
correctly one of you two is going to be "Lead" and the other "Co-Lead"
which is only a thing on a golden plate, but in the end results in sharing
the "Lead" work as appropriate between you two.  That's ok with me.

Hehe.... isn't kito senior enough? :) :p  Compared to me almost everything

I assume this will change as soon as this thing becomes reality.
