If that's the only attitude you can communicate with, I don't expect you
to find anything useful beyond your own imagination.

Because it is bound to be /very/ different from the ones of others around

Saying bullshit? There is a large (but probably still too small) amount of
logic to my statements, so I _personally_ don't think it qualifies as
that. Trolling? Most definitely, and that's not something I apologize for.
If you are capable of accepting it, you will find it a most valuable tool
to grease arguments without resorting to crude primate behavior.

Alright, you want to see the current (still primitive, #include
<stdexcuses.h>) shext tree? Ack, and I'll put it up tomorrow. I have
'some' sleep to catch up on.

If I'd be explaining autoconf on our level to a room full of peasants, it
probably wouldn't be very productive either.
