   I'm sorry, but I can't follow a thread of a bunch of messages or more
   started on another list (of a thread of hundreds of unrelated messages :),
   where each message has tons of quoted material followed by brief
   commentary and small changes.  Even if I tried to work my way through
   all the discussion, I would surely make a mistake.

   If the idea is still in "discussion mode" between you two, that's fine,
   feel free to keep cc-ing the list :).  But if you want me to actually
   understand, please send a proposed diff to standards.texi with the new
   words.  Or, if you don't have the new words yet, and just want a
   reaction to the ideas, please send a summary of what you want to change,
   without any quoting :), and maybe I can suggest something.

Yeah, we're still hashing this out.  This will go on for a couple more
messages, probably.  I will then follow-up to this thread w/ a proper patch
(w/ introductory blurb, against the version in gnulib), for the next cycle.
Hopefully this way we don't take too much of your time.

Would you prefer we do the hashing off-list?  I suppose i should have asked
at the start -- sorry about that.
