It goes without saying that Gerd did an outstanding job.  But what I
meant to say, in addition, is that the analysis of the reports tells
me that Emacs 21.1 is in good shape, so IMHO we shouldn't be too
unhappy about the many reports on bug-gnu-emacs, and/or rush into
fixing all of them in zero time.  Most of them can wait.
