The "recent changes" were all done by me and I was expecting reactions,
when did them.

But in the same way as you write, too many recurrent discussions, so I
thought "let us see"...

And we see just now :-).

For me, the problem is very particular, in this case. The note should be
modified to be consistent with the rest of the book, any time an
x-terminal is needed for running the tests. If there are no objections,
I would like to ask you, please, to fix the fop page.
