Hi, Harald!

As we previously discussed with Andreas, today I plan to merge jolly_new
branch with master and use Andreas's code as base.
After this merge, it makes sense, if we all continue working from this
point, in order to avoid merge problems in future.
Actually, we have already briefly discussed and coordinated our plans with
Andreas in mailing list thread "TBF acknowledged mode is now working".
