You got a small criticism regarding the fact that you're brushing off
direct initialization as unimportant. For the most part, though,
you're right. I haven't criticized your approach. I don't see why
that should bother you.

I disagree. I started asking questions about your claims, hoping to
understand why you think your approach is an improvement. What kind
of a look would you like me to take? I suppose I could try throwing
your approach at my tests, which are more thorough... but then, you
could do that too.

Seriously? Having looked back through the thread, I don't think I
have anything to apologize for here. If you think I stepped out of
line somewhere, please be specific about where.
