that is what i meant: to ensure you check out with your colleagues this, 
in order to avoid any future problems (PD can not require advertising)

about the conversion: i hope this can be automated (see the message from 
Ted) and we can avoid such problems.

another possible problem will be the addition of metadata, but i hope we 
can learn more about that from the experience of Christian (Uraeus) in 
adding metadata to his flag collection.
