    I agree with you here. It's not simply code superiority that matters but a
    balance of attitude and the code's corroboration with numbers. Both had
    numbers to show but I think that one's attitude was preferred over the other.

    I don't see where credit was lacking. As far as I've observed, SD's author
    was given acknowledgment on what he did and even got praise.

    Thank you very much.
