Ok, for the moment I will add a >= dependecy for Redcloth ;-) And I
will consider relaxing this dependency altogether in a future version.

Ok, same here ;-)

I really want to keep the = constaint with facets for the time beeing
;-) Even though
both nitro and facets have matured a lot since the last time we
discussed this, I strongly believe that a = dependecy on facets is
still neccessary.

I would love to see this too ;-)

this sounds great. Go for it ;-) And you get tons of love from all
members of our community!
