Actually, given that he had help from Joe, I would have just assumed things
were fine and put the patch up for review.  I assume that Han-Wen would
still have raised the issues in the same way.  The only difference would
have been that I might have been able to provide a little bit more emotional
support to help with the blow.

Definitely not Extending.  Hooray for the Developer Learning Manual, which
can be a chapter of the CG.  I'll make you a deal.  You contribute text,
I'll put it into the CG.
