Isn’t this a fact now?

No! Just because Mrs Merkel has implied that she will defend the Euro to the death (her political death, that is) it doesn’t mean the electorate will defend it too. I believe that recent polls showed that a significant percentage of the German population would like to return to the D Mark.

Since none of the underlying problems were addressed last week, the debt problem will continue for the foreseeable future and if Mrs Merkel gets pushed out in the meantime (or sees where it is all heading and changes her opinion) anything and everything is possible including a return to the currencies you listed.
