Hi Guys,

should we really let hang it like this on 2.6.24?

I'm not that happy with a recommendation for the distributions to pick
something out of it.

If we should go back to 2.6.23 level, so far nobody seems to have
realized a improvement for the LifeView Trio stuff, I'm not against it.

The changeset in question to revert is mercurial 6579.

If nobody else is interested and no comments, I also don't care anymore.

Cheers,
Hermann
