Taking difficult decisions sometimes is painful, there is no way around that. 
I actually consider it a strength that we go through that and don't take a 
quick decision just to quiet the discussion. The end result will be better.

My feeling is that we are approaching the end of what is possible to 
productively discuss via email. Maybe we should plan a session at Akademy to 
have a face-to-face discussion. If this is prepared a bit, it might be the 
chance to find the good solution Kevin was alluding to, the one which is still 
hiding somewhere.
