Let me review first. If it is valuable (we may have to leave expire
alone). If i can get it done within next day or two fine - else if i get
busyed out elsewhere i will hand it to you. Actually if you have plenty
cycles and are very enthusiastic about this i can hand it to you right
now ;-> Masahide and myself have some momentum going right now but i
dont think this will be that disruptive.

Ok, let me hear from Masahide-san: If he still holds the same opinion as
you then i will make the change.
