I would like to clearify what Fredrik said before - this is _not_ what
we are doing.
He tried out the client to:
a) Test its performance
b) Check how it worked, from a users point of view.

When time comes, we may look into coordinating the two efforts. But when
(and if) this happens, it will be mutual, and coordinated with Rocke. We
will
not use what you have done for our credit.
