I'm very grateful for the contributions you, Marco and Sebastian have made to
Subsurface-mobile. Having a user interaction expert and then willfully ignoring
the input they provide seems like a really silly idea. So I figured I'd give it a try.
And (as before), after playing with it for a while I think you got it right. Which
reinforces my believe that we are very lucky to have you contribute.

Virtuous circle?
