Yes, that is a good idea. Actually I just did not know that that was
allowed already, and the sandbox is working well. But I now see that the
sandbox HTML page indeed mentions its purpose, unreviewed code.

Yes, right. For quickbook, trunk is also more convenient than sandbox
(referring to css etc).

I see, I understand the difference now. Any release in the near future
is certainly planned, by the way...

So my previous post suggested distinction between accepted and proposed
libraries, and this is actually the distinction. Perfect.

I will discuss moving to trunk. This is probably the right moment
because I'm moving to the final namespaces now.

Thanks, Barend
