Maciej, this comment is out of line. Garrett, your question wasn't  
necessary either, and if not especially rude was somewhat lacking in  
respect for the fact that people may have things to do beyond spend every  
minute reading the latest message to the list.

All, please remember that we are trying to get a very broad and diverse  
audience to work together and agree on some complex topics. Being polite  
to one another generally helps, and being rude or insulting to people is  
generally counter-productive or very counter-productive.

cheers
