I quite agree with this statement but to do asame here, I should/must
use a smaller key than my 8192R. I will probably generate a smaller
subkey (2048R ?) and see how it works here.

One more argument in favor of the inline: it questions my fellows;
what are these cabalistic caracters and then you can what's the
purpose of all of this.
