I'm sorry I gave that impression.  I did not intend to do so.

In fact, your collecting money would have no affect on my desire to
work on this issue.

I must have misinterpreted your words.  I considered your words to say
that if nobody responded to your post, the thread would be wasted.

I don't believe anybody that I'm aware of right now is likely to jump
on changing pedals from TextScript to TextSpanner, so I don't think
anything is likely to come from your request in the near future.  I
was merely trying to keep you from being disappointed when nobody took
up the issue.

Again, I am sorry for sounding harsh and polemical.  I certainly did
not intend to.
