Good news, I think. Formerly, in the discussion previous to the
meeting in Tsukuba, Omega was only *another* possibility, even in your
messages. (In other words, I didn't misinterpret the Robin's opinion
as the team's opinion, I just included a "deprecated" opinion
;-) ) Now Omega is the main candidate (if the suggested improvements
are fulfilled in a successor, of course) by far.
