when I saw your message.  At that time all I could see was what was in
your message.  At the same time I sent another message to get a copy
of https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2005-11/msg00888.html.  That arrived

Because my mail is sent in batches, I am generally responding to messages

I am stunned to see that we had this offer.
Now, based on hindsight, I wish we had accepted it.

I wish I had known about the offer.
