Hi Petr,

No problem at all! I can remove/move things easily... but this
splitbrain really makes these 2 networks standing on their own, which
is what I need.

Both are provisioned but not all the same. It gives me the flexibility
we need, that's why it's not difficult to move, as it's flexible at
the moment.

Thanks again for the heads up!
