report on stucco -- (did you see the conclusions which I posted on the
GSBN list?)  They endorsed a product called Siloxane, as truly
keeping water from soaking into cement/lime stucco, without affecting
permeability.  I don't know anything more about this product, but it
occurred to me that it might be useful for Pascal's latest project, which
sounds like it gets a lot of direct exposure to wind-driven rain. 
If you want, I can try to find out more -- OR, email the GSBN list -- as
John Straube is on it.

-thanks the virus. If I assume correctly Siloxane is a product on
sliconbasis. I used a similar product at the mill in Brittany as the lime
joints between the stones did soak water into the 0.5 m thick wall. It
worked excellent yet after already 3 years it is losing its protection
and I will reflect during summer on an answer. The silicone became a
little gray/black at different spots, not really
beautiful.....(snip)..
