So you prefer responses above the thread and not below like I've done now? 
PS: This mail also violates point 1 since it has nothing to do with XML or development. :)

	I really make an effort to read xml-dev.  A few more mornings like this
	and I'm giving up.  A plea for
	- pruning threads when they've gone on long enough particularly when
	they have nothing to do with XML or development
	- more intelligent quoting.  Having deleted the obvious static based on
	title, it would be nice to give each message a glance and see if it's
	worth thinking about.  When a message pops up and the first 20 or 30
	lines are 3 levels of quoted discourse, I just hit the DEL key.  I don't
	think I've read anything from Obasanjo or De Hora in weeks just for this
