Ok, phew :-).

Then let's say +0. I'd like it even better if this could be handled
correctly with move-tracking, but I can't help in any meaningful way
myself with that (and I rather agree that we shouldn't postpone
releasing for too long, and keep nice things from our users), so I'll
thankfully accept any working solution you guys (anyone) can implement
in a reasonable timeframe :-).
