Re: Draft minutes for 2011-01-12

Hi Leigh,

Some improvements for the minutes:

1) "Most implementations of XPath allow it ..." => "Most implementations 
of XPath allow you to shut off short-circuiting ... "

2) "We think the spec is broken ... but ..." => "Because the spec says 
references are only collected based on the nodes matched during an 
evaluation, and the else part isn't evaluated.  We also think the spec is 
broken... because... "

3) "So with if() versus if... that is the kind of thing that will change." 
=> "So with if() versus if... that is the kind of thing where dynamic 
dependencies and the need to do a rebuild will change in going from XPath 
1.0 to 2.0."

I also believe the following attribution to Steven should be changed:

4) "That sounds a bit kludgey. In our system, we discovered not 
circularity but math precision errors..."  => "That sounds a bit kludgey 
but we did also find a reason to stop infinite processing in our system 
from the eighties. We discovered not circularity but..."
