I agree. Actually, this is *another* good reason not to use "colorful"
expressions. They do not translate well.

I agree with this also. He chose to apologize to the list (which I
respect), but my most recent note to him was sent privately. My sense is
that Geronimo is trying to criticize constructively, but is still learning
how to do that. I am trying to offer him concrete advice on how to do
better. I will continue to do so, but I think it is better if I do that
privately with him.

I am guilty of that. There are things about QMake that are making me crazy,
but I don't want to open my mouth unless I am willing to help contribute
(with code) to the solution. In the end, this turns me into a lurker
myself, which is probably bad.
