Thanks for that important observation.  It is likely to improve the

Most certainly.  In the five days I'm tearing my hairs out in order to
get the work of two days accepted, he can do the same amount of work
twice over and commit it.  Without needing to bother about those parts

thoughtfully considered".

You'd be a fool to pick otherwise.  Having my chains yanked is not
something I deal with gracefully.
