You know, when I first joined the mailing list, I did what just about 
every other newbie (to the project) has done. . .  I imposed my wishes 
on them.  I posted a wish list a mile long.  You know what I got?  I got 
an email that basicly said "sounds good, look forward to your patches".  
At first I was a little taken a-back,  after coding all day, last thing 
I wanted to do was code some more.  But, after a little bit, I figured 
out that Isaac himself was a dev, and came home and coded on the project 
after work.  So, I got myself a little red tractor and pulled my head 
out of my *ss and realized that Isaac and the other main dev's aren't 
working for me.  They are working solely for themselves and their 
wives.  At that point in time, I came to the conclusion that if I wanted 
feature x, *I* would have to code it.  Hence, the 15 - 20 patches I've 
sent in.


Pinky, Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

I think so, Brain, but where are we going to get latex gloves, a 
swimming pool filled with vaseline and a herd of yaks at THIS time of night?
