I am sure if people know that that is what you intend, and when DVCS
allows that to happen, no-one will be upset, and we will all return to
our usual mode of being very grateful for all the work that you've
done and are doing.  And - thanks for the clarification - sometimes
things that seem obvious - aren't obvious - and it's good to say them
out loud...

See you,
