What dfong presented as modifications is exactly where discussion
needs to go at this late date.   And let me remind you again that the
draft we have in hand now was communicated on sept 16th, nearly 2

those people have been involved in the discussion in july and august.

design in that thread. I belive both Toshio and Tejas mocked up
modifications to address the concern you raise with regard to the f

they were able to do it without using the word "prevaricate" so i

I refuse to be patient.. especially when I'm suffering from low blood
sugar right before dinner.
