There's really not much more to say, other than this might explain what was taking so long. We'll see how all this turns out, but speculating or guessing has really lost all point by now. I don't know if anyone knows what's going on back there and I'm certain that neither you nor I have any idea (unless you happen to be Franklin or David Williams, in which case, drop me an email).
