Well, as you know (probably better than me) it is irritating to explain
everything from the beginning each time you get a question about a well known
(and old) stuff.

If Marek said so it is probably because on the website you can find all the information
you were looking for (actually it is still unclear to me what you are
interested in). And actually Gabriel has already listed (in one of the previous email)
all the wikipages related to the topic we are discussing. Or not?

Technical details about what? Interface-alternating? It is there! Gabriel wrote
the link. And if you really find it not so interesting, the code is available to
everybody. I think we (as part of the opensource community) should be used to
read each other code.

Gabriel said he has not enough time to look into it. I'm sorry, but I don't think
this is a good reason to blame batman-adv devs :P

18:08, you say that someone mentioned that batman is actually using an old
idea (which is what is described in the wikipages).
I think Marek was referring to that.....

Nobody is hiding anything.....Please don't put the word proprietary in the wrong
context :P
