Hi Miguel,

Yes, sorry I tend to implicitly imply the offer of work. I am usually
quiet as I'm scarce of time (as we all are!) and I only like to get
involved with something I can complete the work for.

It's what I meant by "I'd like to add this to the project..."

As I'm about to add in the preference for bus width, I could look at
adding this in after.

Best Regards,
