Oops... wow, I really need to learn how to use my e-mail client one of
these days...

Well, even though that was meant to be a private expression of sympathy
rather than a public beratement of Artyom, it nonetheless is true.
Artyom makes some good points in his review, but overall his comments on
this library feel a lot more like an attack than a criticism, so I
sympathize with Vladimir's frustration on this matter.
