After reading lots of archives I'm in favour of (a+b) option. I hope you
are not going to be disappointed too much with choice. :)
I think that unified expression should be done already at least I year
ago but I wasn't a committer, at that time. ;P

More seriously, I would like to ask who is going to be my mentor. I
would be grateful for quick responses as there is not so much time left.
Would you like me to sketch my plan and share early thoughts on the
topic in separate thread?
