Well, his answer to the quoted text was what caused me to do it. Sorry if
it sounded too offensive, but it looked like that.

What is more, I honestly did consider if there was anything that would
be wrong to show publicly. Perhaps I assumed that everybody knew how
unnecessarily aggressive the xfree86 maintainer is, and thus nobody
would find hmh's remarks outrageous. As I was writing the reply I'd thought
it had come from the list, but then I saw that it was private then I posted
it. I thought the point I made was more important than anything said about
the xfree86 maintainer.

:> I wish the xfree86 maintainer had taken this lightly, too. Instead he
chose to launch his usual array of derogatory remarks. Had it been
a salient developer, I might have felt hurt. Now, I have managed to
get the sid version here working and hope the lusers here will be happier.
Had to stand a lot of flames to get a small answer. :/
