If "the person" is me and "the company" is SURF, I have already 
commented in another reply that the work is about a feature already 
planned into the roadmap by the community.

 From my point of view, this means that SURF asking to commit this work 
into the project's repository - instead of keeping it secret somewhere 
else - is actually a good thing.

Do you still think I am crossing any wire? Can you please elaborate? Thanks.
