    I did this 2 days ago and got an answer. To quote from his
    mail:

    "Uh... I thought Sturmbahn was german for a
    military training course, or stormbaan as we call it
    in Holland. Turns out it is 'bann', and the word
    does not exists in german.
    I speak German, but probably not as good as I
    originally thought."

    Kind regards
    Nico

    sounds like either there was some wrong information in your mail, or
    upstream didn't understand it - or didn't see the point.
    I guess you wanna explain this in a bit better way to him. Probably add
    a link to
    http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lijst_v..._Schutzstaffel


    Cheers,
