Motivation: The initial decision was a reject with resubmission encouraged. The associate editor had read the manuscript carefully and highlighted some issues that they thought reviewers would find problematic. We fixed these issues and resubmitted two months later (Dec 28th 2021). It then went out to review and reviews were returned Feb 8th 2022 with a decision of Accept with Minor revisions. We took two weeks to make the minor revisions and after resubmission the manuscript was accepted outright in less than 24 hours. Working with this journal was an absolute pleasure - the editor gave frank comments that greatly improved the manuscript, which after resubmission was reviewed very favorably.

Motivation: Very thorough review, including comments from the editor and associate editor, which really improved the paper. The review period was a bit long however.
