I trust you and your work as well and I believe we have some simple
misunderstanding that I don't want to let stand unsolved.

Your whole proposal makes a lot of sense. There are things where
different opinions are natural and can be discussed. But in general I
think it is very good and I am thinking what I have done wrong in our
former discussion that makes you so disordered (maybe the wrong word).

The only point I and initially Herbert tried to address is the place of
the po files.

The good thing is I will focus on 4.0.1 and won't disturb you anymore
;-) But if you are interested to solve the misunderstanding on a direct
way you know where you can find me.
