If you have a question, I'll gladly answer it, but you'll pardon me if I
don't like the tone of the afore-quoted line which closed your email.  This
isn't the customer service department of your local Jiffy Lube.  With that
sort of tone, no one will be in a great hurry to respond to your email.  I
answer questions like yours in my free time, because I don't have the time
(and maybe skill?) to actively contribute to the codebase.  For myself, the
only way I can see to promote this freeware container is to help the people
who want to use it.  So please, next time just post a question and not a
minor threat.

I hope that I helped you solve your problem, or at least nudged you in the
right direction.
