While I agree that it's better to see this kind of response in the bug 
database (with an announcement/link posted to the mailing list on 
hotbutton issues like this), seeing it on the list is better than not 
seeing it at all.  So Quim, count this as positive feedback regarding 
your active participation in the lists and your efforts to bring the 
"straight story" to light whenever possible.  They are noticed and 

I've pasted Quim's response into Bug #303 so folks that refer there will 
have this latest info.
