  I don't believe that post contains significant new information,
 (except that I like pies!), and as such I didn't believe it deserved
 massive visibility.
  To be honest I'm a little disappointed that you chose to complain
 here about that, rather than commenting/mailing me personally.

  It hasn't been posted elsewhere.

  I'm happy to write more, later, and post to the devel-announc list,
 once I've got a chance to do so.  But even so the content would be
 largely known, and largely un-newsworthy.

  And to reiterate things slightly; If there were something that
 users/developers are supposed to know then it shouldn't be posted to just
 a random blog.  
  It should go to the development/announcement lists.  I don't believe I'm
 guilty of that here, and I don't believe anybody else has been guilty of
 that recently.
  (ie. I agree.  Fragmentation is something to be avoided).
