That's fine. But please don't ask me questions about it then.

- "I don't have time to understand this." - Fine.

- "I do have time to understand this. Here is an intelligent question."
  - Fine.

- "I don't have time to understand this so I'm going to ask uninformed
  questions." - Not fine. Not just here, but in any walk of life where
  people respect other people's time.

No. I came here because Yngve suggested that the membership of this list
would appreciate a heads-up.

No. I don't need to sell you the idea. The idea doesn't stand or fall on
the opinion of this mailing list.
