Could you please post a new thread, when you are ready to discuss this change?
It's not something terrible important for me right now, nor it is the right
time to press on the matter, while you are working your way through the
forest, but I'd need some more time to see into this issue under your lights,
to see what possible breakage may happen from it.
Free time, which suddenly became sparse lately. >.>
I didn't noticed anything when I looked at it first two times, but this may
only means that I'm missing something obvious...
