I think I can also supply you with the philosophy and the goal behind it,
especially as all the people who designed HamNoSys are sitting right around
me, and I have done quite some work _with_ the system as well so that I can
speak for the goals from my own perspective.

I truly think it's a great project and I'll be looking forward to it.
Best,
Susanne
