I must confess that perhaps my email, telling that I discussed blocks
with Stefano, had exactly the message that we two are doing something
behind the back of the community. But believe me, this is not the case!
I totally agree with Stefano that "open development" is the way to go,
otherwise sooner or later we would create friction in the community.

Concerning blocks, the only thing happened was that we discussed the
proposal by Stefano which I didn't understand back then. We also
discussed some parts which were not covered yet in the proposal.

But discussing these things should and will only result in new
proposals which will be presented. So all can take part in discussing,
designing and implementing. But sometimes it's very hard to make
complex concepts clear by simply exchanging emails.

Great and thanks!
