Yes.  If this were a conversation among Emacs developers all working
on the issue directly, your responses would make sense.  In the
context of user vs. Emacs developer (the current context), they don't.
(Eg, David was clearly confused by them.)  The user is expressing
requirements, you're talking (in some sense) about the implementation.

Precisely.  Here, I'm not trying to express understanding of what you
wrote (which by the way, *I* had no trouble whatsoever doing).  I'm
giving an account of what I think the user would understand from it,
based not only on my own assessment but on David's responses.

*sigh*  I should know better than to try.
