Yep, that's from the blackbirdsf site! I'm usually better about attributing these things.

It's interesting, comparing the Rene Herse and Alex Singer designs. From the ones I've seen, RH put the pivot where the lever joins the FD, so that the FD cage moves in the same direction as the lever. Singer put the pivot above the FD, which allows the end of the lever to be much higher and easier to reach, but then the FD cage moves in the opposite direction of the lever. Hmm...

P.S. I wouldn't turn down a prototype for beta-testing.
