Presumable it is because Richard's offer -- which I trust was genuine offer of
engineering help -- actually sounded like an offer to take over something that Gennadiy
has spent years creating, over close to 900 commits. The resulting response was rather on
the polite side, even.

I don't know whether damage done in this thread, and in other exchanges about boost.test,
can be undone :-(
