I for one told him that I was looking into this but that I was first resting for the Xmas vacations. Notice how he kept banging on about this all through the holidays irrespective of the holidays, as if an issue could fix itself if he kept speaking about it. So now the holidays are over, I'll look into it. Let's get to the root of his problem before we go on more and more crazy hypothetical solutions to what may not be a problem at all.

Let's keep the word 'crazy' out of this. People celebrate different
holidays, and have differently structured lives. For some with
non-W3Cish day jobs, the vacation is great time to hack and catch up
with topics that might normally be harder to fit into the working

That said, I'm somewhat drowning in WebID mail and losing touch with
what the current live issues are - with the spec, with tools and the
wider landscape. But I'm glad to see a focus on ironing out practical
deployment problems and deployable tools. When even experts have
trouble, that should maybe ring alarm bells...

All the best for the new year,
