Perhaps learn one time to use your email client and reply to the thread,
instead of creating a new thread each time? :) But before discussion about
software engineering, consider committing something more useful than white
spaces and typo fixes.

Well, I am sure about this, no doubt :) I am also sure you have idea and clue
on software engineering, and especially threading.

explaining to me what is crap is not a new thing too. So rather think about
time of other readers in this mailing list.
