Subject Re: [chain] Forking to a 2.0?
Date Thu, 28 Jul 2011 19:22:07 GMT
Hi Simo,

That was just the type of information that I was looking for. Skipping
a logging refactor vastly simplifies the work I was planning on doing.

I won't be able to publish my proof of concept until sometime next
week because I have a vacation coming up.

Thanks,
-Elijah
