Paulo, I really like your patches and am glad that someone is going
through and doing the janitor work as well as some of the bigger
patches you've done. However, sometimes I wish you would slow down and
send patches to the list if they might cause breakage. I know that's
subjective because it's tough to say whether something is trivial or

Nothing personal. :)
