I think we're missing the point I was trying to make. The reason I
suggested this wasn't for my or any ones convenience of reading the
list . My concern with so much coding mail is that it seems to be
user requests for help. Shouldn't this type of chatter be better
/ more appropriate in a bug tracking system anyway? Pardon my ignorance
here -I'm getting pretty far off my comfort zone as I don't know much
about the process of coding especially the communication thereof...
