There was some talk that made that idea known without it being made 
explicit.  But water under the bridge.  Chris was expansive on that 
issue in his reply.

But my critique is also a suggestion that a closer definition of the

I admit, but I wanted to air it out.

Again, just a few useful macros could make for a successful collection.
