Sorry, I wanted to show I was open, and when something is good, I  
don't fear to recognize it is.

What about do even better then ?  :-)

You are right, I was not enough precise, and any help to improve /  
rewrite my proposal is welcome.

opinions, people who disagree and other answers .. and so on.

I'm confident somebody will have a good idea soon :-)
