It was obvious to me.  I'm speaking about my subjective state, not
about some inherent "obviousness".  I assumed it was obvious, and it
apparently wasn't.  So I'm trying not to make the same mistake this

I'm not asking for it to be; I'm happy to do it by GR.

Nor did I complain that he didn't.  But if I had said, "would this GR
impose any delays on the release of sarge", I would expect him to say,
"in my opinion, yes".  Nobody asked, so it's not somebody's fault.
I'm not expecting him to guess.

But now I *am* asking.
