Hi Takatoshi,

Clearly you're right and it's a beginner's mistake. Thanks, I'll fix this

Good :)
You're probably one of the first to use this new feature so your experience
with it will be very useful.
Please let me know how it went.

I remember. We spoke at the end of the talk, right? I'm doing great, thanks
I remember you required some feature but I forgot what it was. Was it this
automatic region id calculation of pseudo entry state?
