Nobody wrote that until you just did.

That's of course what I meant writing 2^9.

Sorry for filling the list with this OT-stuff, but
it is kind of fun and interesting:
I don't seem to be able to relate what you write to
what metze (or I) wrote... I keep getting the impression that
your mailer presents my '*' characters (asterisk)
as '^' (caret).
Confused - Michael
PS: Apart from that, coming back to the original topic,
I like Metze's idea to go forward with 4.2 and possibly
release 4.3 somwhat earlier so that the longer release
period of 4.1->4.3 could be compensated by a shorter one for
4.3, resulting roughly in a 2*9 months (two times nine months...)
period for 4.1->4.3. ;-))
