Unless someone disagrees, I think the best course of action would be to inform
Sonny that we would rather wait immediately after the next release (whether
2007.1 or 2008.0) before commiting ourselves. I will also make sure to ask

bit of research.) I will mail him tomorrow unless there are new elements of
discussion by then.
