It's clear to me that we'll support the ballot of Gerv (finally after 
two failed ones) we can get this done.

For yours or similar ballots I believe we need much more time and

something equally bad wouldn't be exactly what I want - but I don't know 
yet since it clearly has to be studied and evaluated first.
