I am not sure why you consider this an insult to you. I can imagine
that Jörg is a bit annoyed about the matter because at the time of the
quoted email I did not react very enthousiastically. Obviously I do
not have enough insight in this matter to appreciate Jörg's work
sufficiently, while you, Victor, do. Please, go ahead together and
make it useful for others.
