In this regard, we would like to emphasize that our preceding paper [3] was based on initial "conjecture" that in order to explain Pioneer anomaly, it would be necessary to generalize pseudo-Riemann metric of General Relativity theory into broader context, which may include Yefremov's Quaternion Relativity for instance.
