Whoa! C'mon! My intention was not to drive you away.

You have been more than competent, IMHO. There are just small glitches
from time to time, as any of us has.

I surely don't have a bad eye for you, I just chose to look closer at
you. Consider it a favour ;-)

that I was too focused on your commits for a while, mostly, not
