I think there is still time for everything, but up to now I have
NO idea what you are talking about, what are the plans etc etc.
I remember faintly some ideas Mojca has proposed some time ago, but
the last I heard was "I have to think about how to organize it ..."
and gone she was.

So I am open to help you and whatever is needed, but if we start only
NOW with the conceptual work on how to integrate it we should *better*
hurry or it will not happen in time.

Best wishes

CONG (n.)
Strange-shaped metal utensil found at the back of the saucepan
cupboard. Many authorities believe that congs provide conclusive proof
of the existence of a now extinct form of yellow vegetable which the
Victorians used to boil mercilessly.
