Well, there's just an outside chanse that RS is a total asswipe and deserves
to be richly screwed for breaking some non-disclosure agreement against a
former employer/collaborator.  This aside, I feel happy with the absolute
statement that "Apache Group don't want to play".  In future however, I'd be
EVEN HAPPIER if we got a copy of the 'official' response given in the Group's
name BEFORE it got sent.  Please can we all be more careful when we elect, or
are elected, to speak on behalf of others?
