Yes, I agree, and said that. I'm not 100% sure that this typical sequence is
always all there is, but let's go with it, at least for now. If there are
complications then we can figure out what to do later.

Until you explicitly ask for completion again, right? (Just rephasing the
same question, to be sure.)

I will mail you just the doc files. I'm not sure which parts you feel are
relevant. Do you already have the code? Do you intend to look at the code?
