And I agree with you.  I not only jabber a lot; I get carried away at

There is no easy way to chose only which tables you might want.  To the
complete novice like myself, even with Leonid's rather good instructions, 
it is a mystery as to what tables are needed, and which ones would never
likely be used.  Seems to me, I only need one since I use only English
and CJK.

Multibookmarks, Chartrans (even if I don't need it), Temp file handling,
any security features related to anonymous, Gettext.

Certainly not.  All coordinating developers have no responsibility
beyond themselves.  I take nothing for granted.  I thank you all.
