Hm, I got the impression in your first postings that you wanted this. 
Good when it is not. Then we are both looking into the same direction.

I'm not a developer. I'm not familar with the deep technology in the

Right. And to find the real stoppers we have to work in Bugzilla and to 
find the still open issues that fulfills the stopper criteria.
