Eck.  That came across very differently from the way I intended, and I
want to apologise for that.

I actually felt bad that I had gone and suggested it as being that
important rather than just leaving it in the hands of the developers,
because I don't know that I /should/ be bothering y'all with my ideas of
what matters and what doesn't.

I certainly didn't mean to imply that it should have had a response or
that you, or any of the other developers, had failed because you hadn't
attended to my problems promptly.

I am very sorry that my message came across that way, and I do
appreciate the work that y'all put into this.
