  In general I like the approach 'let's put what we consider fine first
and discuss other parts later' . I guess it's the third round of review
and I really find easier to comment based on existing stuff than big patches
that gets iterated over time. So let's isolate what we consider okay
and not needing further discussion, push them now, than in an upcoming
fourth iteration, 

  thanks,

Daniel
