(a) Thanks for the kind words, but I'm not interested in being
sole chair.

(b) 165 group participants have jumped thru various hoops to
join this WG, so far; I consider each of those to be a vote, of sorts,
in favor of you as co-chair, Chris.

I appreciate that the start-up phase of this Working Group is
frustrating, but I ask, again, that people bear with us as
we sort things out.

Oh... and 
(c) thanks for the update on your situation, Chris.
You had told me as much, but I wasn't sure how much I was
at liberty to share with the rest of the group (and,
via the archives, the world...).
