Wow... looking at your requirements document I wonder if there is any 
aspect of identity not covered by your new project.

Hard for me to reply much atm. as we are getting quite advanced 
prototyping with various elements that you listed already. And now you 
suddenly write that this is owned by your new project under RestEasy 
umbrella... Not sure what you expect to hear from us?

We should do a call next week. Let me arrange it after the weekend to 
discuss this. Tomorrow I'm on PTO and hoped to start in 30min... ;)
