I _absolutely_ did NOT think of you when typing that sentence.  I didn't
even check who wrote the comment about Colorado support (well, now I guess
it was you).  I'm sorry, I should have thought twice before posting that

I have just got a similar response a long time ago when I asked for something
that some NetBSD developers didn't see as important as I did.

Well, I have two SCSI streamers and I believe that they are the right way
to go, but I also understand that people want to use the hardware they
already have.  I even understand that people would like to buy cheap
hardware, even if it IS worse than the top quality things.
