Please don't shut up ^^. I really value the feedback.
I see myself the value of both small and atomic/self-contained/complete
commits.

In general what happens is that we are few modifying iceberg.
But on the other side we really had given a thought to many of these

implemented because it would be too much work :)).
I try to explain them as better as I can, I can probably do better :)
