Pardon my question -- I'm new to this list, and it may be a bit dense 
-- but why can't we just ask Roy Fielding what he was talking about?  
Or is this some sort of rite of passage in which the young apprentices 
must prove themselves unaided?

It seems to me that open communication is a bare essential for 
preventing problems like this in the future -- not to mention solving 
the one at hand!
