Hi Alexander,

Sorry to have you go dark.  We've relied on you, perhaps too much, to
keep things sane on Windows.  But I and John at least can use Windows,
so someone will pick up that torch.

Rightly or wrongly, I have always assumed that people who need those
features will add them.  I consider it no bad thing that open source
hackers tend to scratch their own itches-- the person with the itch is
the only one who knows when it is properly scratched.  For me, nested
trees are an itch, but they are a big change and hard to get polished
enough for Bazaar.

In any case, best wishes.  I hope you'll feel like coming back to us soon.
