I don't say "hah!" like I caught you or something .. I could try to
soften the emails further so that's not the feeling .. As far as sending
fixed patches to people it's not really feasible due to the number of
patches I would have to send out.. The other issues is that if I send a
corrected patch I could become responsible for that persons patch
instead of them .. I could send out delta patches, however, I don't want
people to rely on me to fix these issues.. Ideally people would correct
them prior to sending the patches out..
