Do you have the slightest idea what he's talking about? It would seem
strange for Dired to interfere with specifiers, as the word "specifier"
doesn't even appear in the Dired source code. When I do (with Dired
(make-image-specifier (list (cons 'global '[jpeg :file "<some jpeg file>"])))
#<image-specifier global=((x) . [jpeg :file "<some jpeg file" :data #"<binary
which seems exactly right to me.
Should I follow up to him on the list? I'm a bit concerned I'll get
sucked into on of his tirades ...
