We Indians use "doubt" synonomously with "question".  You should
really read Gopal as saying "Mike Dupont comes up with a *lot* of
questions on Treecc...".  

Folks from native english speaking cultures would have interpreted
Gopal as saying "Mike had some really serious issues about the very
feasibility of Treecc ... " kinda thing, which ofcourse is neither
true not what Gopal wanted to say!

With the growing number of Indians participating on this list, I
thought this was an interesting point to bring up :)
