Hi all,

- Anything more I can/need to do to bring this forward?
- Any quiet concerns?

I realize it is a subsystem crossing change, and a lot going on elsewhere,
nevertheless I believe this is a time saver in the slightly longer run,
as it allows automation of checking, even without a "perfect"
code base to begin with.

Thanks,
Knut
