The Swedes have always been against the Data Retention Directive, 
arguing for example that services like gmail and hotmail aren't "email", 
and that only SMTP/POP3 transactions would need to be logged.

Some of the people in favour of the collapse of the Directive see it as 
an opportunity to argue for a better-drafted replacement, which they 
hope would remove 'loopholes' like that.
