Hello Stefan, Philippe, Charles and Everyone!
Thank you for your excellent feedback! I have read all your messages
and I am thinking about what you said..Nice to hear from you Stefan,
too.....I know how busy you are right now...I think the General
Arrows need to be defined with a little more detail in the future,
but right now we have to take it one step at a time, so your feedback
helps a lot in this process....
I will try to write up a tiny possibility to see what you all feel,
perhaps later this Spring...so when the time comes, we can discuss it
Have a splendid day everyone!!
