Yes, I know (but thanks for the details). But "whatever inconsistent
idea Window has come up upon" is perhaps a bit disparaging (though I
tend to believe you did not notice yourself)? Not that I am very fond of
w32, but saves time to avoid both disparaging and adoring expressions
during discussions.

If someone want to express something like that it is much better to do
that separately in my opinion. And I am trying to learn that myself ...
