Dear all,

concerning the possibility to calculate a covariance matrix (which I like very much!), I would like to suggest an additional filter. Specifically, I am concerned that if the number of values in the covariance matrix exceeds the number of individuals we might be able to use the values for reconstruction of individual values. I see several options:

- Number of values in covariance matrix needs to be smaller than number of individuals
- same as the one before, but with a percentage the host can define (Number of covariance = 0.8 * number of individuals)
- Same as the two before but based on the number of variables instead of values in covariance matrix

Best wishes, Daniela
