Actually, I am not sure if I understand or see the difference between
both descriptions?

Stephan, you're really that old already? :-))
But 24 really isn't that far away - I think I was around that age when
I joined this project... a long time ago.

BTW Adi, I'm sorry when I was too harsh with you a couple of mails ago
- I was just very annoyed by this "I need a test case" when I just gave
you one. I didn't want to hurt your feelings either, I just wanted to
make you think about the other side of things.
