Thanks. And for the curiosity about how KerGIS will work out, and what 
it will be, the short answer again is: it will be what people will 
make it. 

But this will not be made randomly: a consistent error is
almost a truth, since if you have consistently made the very same error,
a simple translation can make the whole becomes the truth. So, for
people who are wondering, KerGIS will be on the cathedral side, and not
on the bazaar one...
