Yes, but unfortunately if every question that was asked but not
answered on -users, was asked on -devel, then -devel would become
useless for actual development, and another devel list would have to be
set up.  Please persevere with -users, or use Google, or so; -devel is
really, really not the right forum for this type of question.
