Sure I trust him too, but since LO and TDF have been created you are  
on both sides, and I fear that what you want to communicate will  
simply be catastrophic for the current effort.

So please, there is no urgency, and we must take care to not  
communicate badly.

has to be done, and "how" instead  ;-)
