I am not aware of your having sent me any private emails, and I 
certainly haven't solicited any: the only mail that legitimately arrives 
in this account is from the list.

If I'm guilty of making public something that should have remained 
private then I apologise. But apart from that my sentiment stands: 
you're criticising the project without being in a position to judge the 
implications of the changes you're requesting, and on occasion you've 
accused an individual developer of willfully ignoring your suggestions.

SOP around here is that if you have a bug or suggestion then you raise 
it in Mantis. If it's a bug then you append example code, and in any 
case you stand far more chance of having the concern addressed if you're 
able to contribute a patch.
