   Ok last words.  yes, some of the plans are forks or follow-ons.
   some are not. Finally, now you are changing the terms of the debate 
from " in development" to "Serious plans" Let me define serious
   and put an end to speculations. If we spend time and money on it
   it's serious. Time and money is being spent. (Ok now dont shift the 
debate to how much time and how much money counts as serious. or dont 
complain that I didnt tell you everything and therefore you were forced 
to speculate. )

    In any case, We do agree that this discussion is better taken up 
elsewhere. Come to the Gta03 list and make some positive contributions, 
or healthy criticisms. I know you are passionate about this stuff as am 
I. I'll talk as transparently as I can over there with people who want 
to move things forward. come and join us. and peace.
last words from me here on this stuff, hope to see you on the new list.
