[[[ To any NSA and FBI agents reading my email: please consider    ]]]
[[[ whether defending the US Constitution against all enemies,     ]]]
[[[ foreign or domestic, requires you to follow Snowden's example. ]]]

I just got the message below.  I suspect it announces the release
of a new version, but the wording gives that so much importance
that it is more befitting a new package than a new version.

If it said

  There is a new version of Soap-Client, version 3.1.3
  in GNU ELPA.

it would avoid giving the wrong impression.
