Arf, JM, maybe I'm still not clear about this. The functionality of scheduling you
want the
GrnatMother BL to do, will actually be done by what you call the Mother BL. So
no point having the GrantMother-BL neither the Mother-BL names, that's why I call
both just plain BL. I mean, there's no point naming features, or functionality.

Am I clear now, and, if you disagree, maybe we should have one more irc session
about this ;)
