that was just a brief comment to mention that even if both (buildbot +

+1 ... I'll be the first one that won't follow it since I have no time
for that and my intention was not to suggest that «pb is better than
bb» (but if you follow, please do it in a separate thread ;o)

as an option ... then I could give a hand (... and I'll possibly do it
anyway , once I have time :-/ )

... turning myself off ...
