Actually, one thing that I forgot there, that really impressed me (to the
point where I don't at all mind giving it its own post) was Branden's
thanks for the sarge release [0]. I don't think any DPL's done that
before, or at the very least not so clearly and deliberately, and when
I contrast it to Bdale forgetting to mention the release even happened
(!!) [1], well, I'm jealous, what can I say?
