Pulled, thanks Stefan.

I would say never pull from the net tree until right after I pull your
tree and thus you can do a clean fast-forward merge.

If you want to test, right before you send me a pull request do a test
pull into a local throw-away branch.

Otherwise I'll handle conflicts and merge issues.
