How is this "per"?

I'd rather not, especially on short notice like this.

Especially when the issues thus far raised are completely irrelevant  
to anything on our plate for this *entire round of standardization*.

(Plus, it's a non sequitur.)

I believe not if the bug is repaired a la Enrico's post.

That would be the point.

We have plenty of things to discuss (a NAF operator, filter stuff,  
the paradoxical post, things I'm already tasked e.g.,  
compositionality, etc.). None of this stuff has been raised in email  
and Pat is chairing.

*Evidently* we need to refresh people's understanding of the panoply  
of issues, and, frankly, the best way is to start good email threads.

Cheers,
Bijan.
