Jörn - I've no wish to start a flame war with you since you seem to be in
enough trouble already with Patrick.  However, I'm really starting to share
Patrick's frustration with some of your responses - and particularly, the
way that you continually misrepresent other peoples' views.  It's very
clear that you're not even making an attempt to read other peoples' posts,
let alone spending any time to analyse or think about them.  For example,

Please Jörn, go back to the top of your post and read point 2 again.

You've made it very clear that you don't want to pay for svn access and
we all accept your position.  There is no need for you to reinforce your
argument by misrepresenting other peoples' posts.
