Hi Sylvain!

I'll take the heat for your problem, because I feel like I'm the one who's
slowing things down for you.  So let me say a) I apologize for being slow to
respond, b) I'm still in Montreal today but am back tomorrow - can we plan to
hash the details of the change out then?  Meet on IRC at 1PM EST, say?  And c)
I'm mostly in favor of your changes, I just want to make sure that they fit
with the future evolution of the header code.

As Tom said, we are really psyched you're interested in Axis, you clearly have
some good ideas, and I for one would love to see you become a committer if
you're interested - you've clearly got the moxie.  Please, on behalf of myself
and the team, don't give up.  We'll get this right.

--G
