Well then you should add more engineering efforts
to help us finish it sooner then :-).

It would be most appreciated :-).

After all, you surely didn't expect us to just do
it for you without any help, did you ? :-) :-).

I'll also believe EMC's 2012 SMB3 release date
when I see the products for sale, not before :-).

Remember I've been developing software for a long
time, so I'm naturally conservative on my ship
