we still have some things to solve in the new labelling; I think of
speed (very low, unacceptable in several cases) and curved labels along
complex lines

I think we should start documenting what is missing from the new
symbology; I do not think we have a complete list yet

For this I think we should get rid of most crashes, still a bit too

May I suggest 30 March? ;)

I think we need more cleanup than new functionalities.

All the best.
