Bjoern, just read it again. He is asking not to merge changes like
german comments or the wholesale string/sal_Bool changes that are low
priority but complicate life when one tries to rebase changes. He also
did not speak about indefinite. Kohei is know to be a fast and concise
fellow, so don't worry, it will not take the same time as chart2.

He just implores the clemency of the pears to make his re-factoring less
of PITA.
