People love rumors, so give them to them, especially if they help keeping 
images simple, and life is complex enough ;)

But the rumor about Marble I have to spoil a little, as things were initiated 
right in front of me, between Michael Zanetti, proud owner of KDE and 
Canonical hats, and Mr. Marble tackat himself, and right at Akademy.
Michael missed a good navigation program on his otherwise by own definition 
quite usable Ubuntu Touch phone (dogfooding), and Torsten encouraged him to 
take Marble and port it to Qt5, including the routing code.

"apparent", "may"... let's try to stay with facts even when emotional, yes? :)

Cheers
Friedrich
