*laugh* I wasn't trying to correspond w/ Jefferson, just with Tom for a couple emails (not that I object). He then quoted me in his conversation with Jefferson. I'm going to be bailing on trying to keep up with this thread (though wanting to be CCed and still reading it), pending writing / sketching up a fuller description that will hopefully answer most of the questions raised both on and off list.

Including me. :-P

/me adds vote of agreement. I see no need to take any of the discussion that's ontopic offlist - that seems to be a good way to handle meta stuff (like ensuring that we are all on the same page in terms of intent and non-insulting and such), but when *content* goes offlist it just gets too hard to track the threads. (Perhaps something that would be 2d-able? ;-P) - Sai
