    Did I say these patches were bad in general? All I'm asking for is an
    explanation for a few design decisions to understand the patch and its
    behaviour better and evaluate alternative solutions.
    Neither of you have shown any real interest in this so far.

    This "shut up and show code" attitude is sometimes quite funny, but it's
    no real threat to me. I hoped to avoid this and solve this more civilized.
    Of course I'll understand the issues better afterwards, but you could as
    easily just tell me. It will waste my time, I could spend on other
    projects and it will put Andrew in the unfortunate position to decide,
    which patch to accept.
    Is this really what you want?

    bye, Roman
