We'll just have to roll a dice then. ;-)
AFAIAC it doesn't matter that much, I think we all three know our way around
d-i and freerunner. I'll be happy to co-mentor this.

Sound all good to me. :-)
Speaking out of own experience, I say it would be good first step if you got d-i
to build (at all) as soon as possible.
