Thanks for the support, Carla, Helen, Michael :) I
really appreciate it. It's one of the things I
appreciate the most, not only of d-w, but also from
other lists (LC). I wasn't talking in any way about

which I've been involved. If you're talking about free
software in general, well, I do not share your point
