I tried to give an explanation last night. If I wasn't clear or if you
disagree on some points, just say so, and we can discuss it.

Also, in all seriousness, I appreciate the time and thought you've
contributed over the years to the library. It's got to suck having to
listen to complaints, but they're offered in good faith, 'cause we all
just want to see all these libraries be the best they can be, even
though we may not be in agreement initially.
