Lest there be any confusion, I'll point out that while Stephan has
been working as a paid developer on SchoolTool, and I'm happy that he
lobbies for issues that he perceives to be in the project's interest,
like this one, he isn't doing so as a formal representative of
SchoolTool as such.

Stephan and I, let alone Mark, haven't discussed this proposal (yet),
and I don't yet know what SchoolTool's position will be.
