Thanks, David!

Am I counting correctly that this would close the last substantive open issue? If so, and if Harald and Colin confirm they are okay with the change, we should be able to request publication for the upcoming version, correct?

(I see that Harald expressed support as I am typing this...)

Thanks!

Ben.
