(Small and simple are marketing terms?  Be right back; I need to update my 
profile...) avoid misleading or meaningless drivel, puffery, and redundancy.  Do, 
however, point out some basic features that might help users decide which of 
our oofteen deflate libraries fits their needs.  Add -er if you think it helps, 
or add some examples.

Otherwise, a common-sense guideline risks devolving into 'avoid adjectives; you 
might accidentally write a useful description'.

Kind regards,


Sent on the go.  Excuse or enjoy my brevity.
