You didn't send mail to the OWNER= address. Had you done so,
it would have arrived in a mailbox to which I give a higher priority.
Also, this may be a cultural/language issue, but there is a huge
difference between "If nobody complain" and "May I do this?" The
first is saying that you will do something unless told otherwise.
The second is asking permission, which is the appropriate thing to
do. Basically the first is looking for a negative response and
the second is looking for a positive affirmation.

} Is there a technical point, or is it purely formal? I assume the later

It looks like my choice of words was rather poor. I meant to
say that I didn't like the way you've implemented it. You didn't
answer my question about the origin of the patch... As I indicated,
I want to know more about the patch before I decide what to do with
it. I also don't want a huge proliferation of options, so I may
just make it a regular patch if it is safe to do so.
