there IS a useful, constructive point in all this,
but Mr de Raadt has nothing to do with it:
TD's description of him today matches my own impression quite closely.
we DID start by being perfectly polite & asking him if he'ld like to help
-- "see the Archive" -- , only to be rewarded with boorish abuse.
the important thing to me is Bela's reaction,
which is to offer to do some auditing for himself:
if HE believes it worth his time, i'll go along readily.
