Sorry about the misunderstanding -- no malice intended. Version history 
indicates that you were the one bringing Calc into the Emacs tree and did quite 
some work on it at the time, so it would be daft to assume that you didn't have 
good knowledge of the code. In other words, there may very well be something 
you know about it that I could learn.

However, I understand that you have made up your mind. Sorry about wasting your 

(Moving Calc to ELPA would probably be beneficial to everyone, but given the 
inevitable opposition to such a move, nothing I would propose seriously.)
