Er. I've actually *worked* on the installer. Not as much as I'd like,
but sure as hell more than you.

Not a lie; at most, a statement that wasn't clear enough so that you'd

Any kind of change could have occurred in the mean time, and there's no

No, it's yours.

Listmasters: please take appropriate action regarding this user. He's
been extremely abusive to multiple developers, does not want to listen
to reason, has shown repeated proofs of arrogance and a superiority
complex, and is in general disruptive to normal discussion on the list.
