Well said. As I've come to expect from Polyptron. And by that, I hope 
this godforsaken discussion has come to an end. As there's no such thing 
as an "eierlegende Wollmilchsau", there will always be people who 
object, no matter how things are done, and I cannot see the point in 
continuing this any further.
