Eh, I feel that's slightly taken out of context, in that we both smiled at
each other during the course of the discussion, and I wouldn't have made
such a long post if I hadn't both respected Vaeth and thought it was a
technical discussion (now that we have project. I'm cross-posting this for
for those who only follow dev; please follow up to project if you wish to
comment further.) I did thank him at the end too, to keep it civil.
Having said that, you're right that it could be read like that, and I
applaud your acting to stop any suggestion of it.
Guess I was being a bit Germanic ;-)
