I am not interested about applause in no way.

I am very interested about solving this -- I have a plan in my mind and
enough experience in math, C and emacs, but I need to talk with somebody
about this , as alone I cannot do it.

Do not hurry. During the spring I will come around Paris, and after a
while I will think considering this.

Starting from Sep-October 2017 I will be busy and have not too much time
for this for the next year.

If in the meantime somebody around is interested to read and discuss
about this just let me know.


No GNUs is bad news.
