Hi Alexandre,
I didn't me someone special (you). It was the general impression that 
most were criticizing special things of the contest. Maybe they are 
right. Thats not my point.
I simply want to thank a.l.e for stepping out, thinking about this, 
doing some work, pushing things forward, maybe with some faults, but 
he is doing it. Other would "release" only perfect things (which we 
need also), but I thing doing steps forward even with (maybe) smaller 
fault is better than doing nothing. A.l.e. did. Thanks again for this.
