i'm already discussing this point with Holtej, and i tried to express
myself, and he in my opinion understands very well why i want have to
come up with. the only thing is that he disagrees. unfortunately i'm
not convinced yet, and so maybe we should maybe accept that i don't
succeed in convincing you and you don't succed in convincing me.
that's not too tragic. i try to avoid speaking about cases as much as
i can. for example, right now. bye!
