I'll take it under advisement

(AGI) - Vatican City, Dec. 12 - "Thank you, I will think about it," said Pope Benedict XVI in a tireless response to advice put forth by the Curia of Cardinals in talks which began following the start of his pontificate. However, the new Pope makes his decisions on his own and in his own time. According to the French Catholic Agency, "The Media", "this behaviour in fact destabilizes members of the Curia." [...] "The Media" article, entitled, "The Style of Benedict XVI", described the nominees [Levada, et. al.] as being "outsiders, and made reference to rumours that have been circulating since the beginning of his pontificate regarding his intentions of reforming the Roman Curia according to simplifying criteria advised to him during meetings of the General Congregations before the Conclave, by Cardinal Attilio Nicora, President of Apsa, the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic Sea. According to indiscretions revealed by the Catholic article, Cardinal Nicora today heads a Commission that includes members of the Secretariat of State and the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legislative Texts.(AGI).

The article is from AGI Online.

It's unclear... Is Cardinal Nicora the head of a commission to 'reinvent' the Curia (like Al Gore)?
