Dear Jens,

Then again if you had opensourced your code there would not be such a
discussion, because anyone who cared could implement the "skip and
fill" functionality (or any functionality for that matter) and maybe
contribute it back to epidata.

But obviously IMHO your business model is based on control (and one
should respect that), so my point is moot...
