As a fellow Glance core reviewer, I just want to thank you for your
effort on this (and the people who started this work a few cycles ago,
including Flavio and Fei Long Wang... assuming you're carrying on
their work.

If this won't make it into Mitaka, hopefully it can be reviewed and
merged early on in Newton by the Nova team.
