All right. So now, it's no use to discuss furthermore about sort &#@¨!#$ and
Unfortunatly Pablo and Gilles have not seen all the messages separatly
posted in the mailing lists firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com :
I hope there won't be confusion about the goal of all that ; the problem is

To all, much thanks again.
