I have it on good authority (from Ben himself) that he was speaking as 
his own Ben Hutchings, not Codethink's.

Not really, given my comment above - there's no plot here :-)

As Codethink's Paul Sherwood, I could offer some opinions but I've 
elsewhere been advised as GENIVI's Paul Sherwood to 'stick to the facts'

As devcurmudgeon, the only thing I can offer off the top of my head is

I'll stay out of the detail in the rest of this email since I still 
don't understand it all so far.
