You're getting me wrong, I'm not advocating a last minute rush to fix this. I 
mearly want to know why FESco decided as it did. Sofar no-one has been able to 
explain that properly to me. Also I almost always read the FESco meeting 
minutes, and I cannot remember seeing this there. But thats probably my fault, 
can someone point me to the minutes of the meeting where this was decided?
