Benoit, all great points, we should definitely look into all those
things. I also think these are not blocking for getting the current
binaries on the website (given we can define which works on which
systems, as per my last mail, and given we don't find more issues).

Once we have more people using this, we can fix all the remaining
issues. I hope you agree! :)
