Your are absolutly right!!!  

NEVER NEVER Karl would write (such) a message on Usenet..

There are some rumors from non-related, un-official sources
about the launch configuration, but I will not spread this information
until there is an official statement from ARIANESPACE/EUTELSAT,
which might not be expected before the ILA in Berlin... 

I fear we might see a lot of rumors until we get something official and it's
always bad to get the news first from a "newspaper"..
