Thank you, Ralph. This is marvelous!    (01)

[ppy] That's obviously highly desirable ... given the kind of 
capabilities you are citing. You noticed that I've even proposed 
that we partially waive the IPR restrictions so that we can all 
gain a better perspective on what's out there.    (03)

With your message here (and Holger's earlier message as well), 
we've clearly registered your interest and support (with 
appreciations). Do (yourself, Holger, ...) come join us at the 
Thu 2006.08.31 call. We'll probably be making a few decisions, as 
a community, over that call, on the details (direction, goals, 
organization, program, ... etc.) of this coming series.    (04)

Regards.  =ppy
