Hear, hear.
You have always been responsive, courteous and helpful to me and that 
gave me an excellent introduction to the world of SANE.

If I had the time I might be up for that and in the future, perhaps that 
might come to pass, but I think for the moment I will just interject 
every now and then and do what I can.
That includes finishing up the work that I am doing now.

What will happen to your PPAs? Are you planning to hand that over to 
someone else?
I know they are a big deal for many people, including myself.
