Burmese junta split?

Check out this report in the Scotsman. It's claimed that General Maung Aye is having talks with Aung San Suu Kyi.
Of course, there may be no truth in it, communications have been largely cut making reporting pretty difficult. But it's not as though they don't have previous form, many's the general basking in power and wealth (well, skulking in their lair in Pyinmana) one day, only to find himself in chokey the next. Rather than a united front, they're riven with cliques.
Pretty odd bunch too, who put their faith in astrologers, fortune tellers and conjurors.
