Uva, my son, what the sodding hell have you done? (Again, rhyme quite
intentional, beer acceptable as payment.)

If Brett was not kidding, and I rather think he was, at least in part,
he is just one guy, and you may therefore ignore him as you wish.

How the hell can you honestly think that no-one on this list is
interested in research? Have you *met* Steve Turnbull, Chris Sekiya,
Jim Breen, etc? These hoary hackers (no, fellows, that was *not*
whorey, get your gander back down!) scoff at the very thought of
