Hi Lutz,

If that issue persists with the new webrev (coming up soon), I may need ad'l information. If not activated by command line argument or explicit call, the new code has _ZERO_ effect. 

Yes, I've executed all tests with the new flag enabled. I'll re-run with the new webrev and let you
know the result.

I think the pdf should be fine for now (the doc team will have a look). I've created a subtask to
keep track of the documentation in the Tools Reference Guide:

I'm not sure either. I would assume that a summary will go into the Tools Reference Guide (and maybe
the release notes or other guides) and that we should provide a link to the full documentation.
Let's see what the doc team comes up with. I've added a comment to the doc task.

Sounds good, I know that problem :)

Yes, I think it would be nice to add this to the patch.

Sure, don't hurry. I'll take a look at the new webrev once it's available.
