*shrug / sigh*

Look, we've lost this argument -- and yes, I use the term "lost"
and "argument" advisedly.  I am *not* happy with how nasty this
thread has gotten and the lack of respect we appear to have for
each other's viewpoints.  I'm going to delete all remaining emails
about this matter without reading them, because I have better
things to do than to have my concerns belittled.

I'll have to be even more cautious when running GLISS than I was
initially planning.  I'm not at all looking forward to it... and
frankly, my motivation to do *anything* for lilypond is
approaching an all-time low.  Good thing I'm going on vacation
