So I'm more than happy for there to be more discussion about what we
should do. I can only see two rather bad options and see the
arguments against both but its not really clear to me which one is the
least worst one.

I can't make the Nova meeting this week because its the middle of
the night for me, but I've put it on the agenda so perhaps there will
more discussion about it then.
