Hmmm, well if we say Hot Standby rather than HOT Standby. We need to
differentiate what we have now ("warm") with what we hope to achieve
("hot"). (I do have to say I've been amazed at how many people seem to
have confused what Florian is working on).

I'm very happy with what has been achieved, but we really should regard
this as research and not committable code. In this case, the idea of
"pencils down" doesn't make any sense.
