Andreas, thank you for your support.

I'm collecting all of the feedback, we have lots of comments and change 
suggests - but largely we're heading in a good direction.

You've pointed out some obvious missing pieces (the new s2 patch was 
written in 12 hours - so it hasn't had the time multiproto had to be 
developers), so we're going to have to fill in some missing pieces.

When the mailing list settles down I'm going to publish an email to all 
interested parties about all of the comments, and we can respond to each 
comment until we feels it's resolved.

Again, thank you for your support.
