1. the answer was not far away
2. if another tree runs into general discussion that's okay.

What would be the alternative you could like, then?
Freeze the book, turn the results of the mailinglist into a faq and that's it.
No more repeating questions, no more different views for or against.

I myself do not want a mailinglist which is just question-answer-play.
I like to hear all the ideas people get when one question arises, and the next
one and all the pros and cons. That is what makes the whole project living.
