I'm fairly neutral toward the change, to the extent that it matters,
being "merely" a use and not otherwise involved in the project.

But a different question: this is the second posting I've seen on this
topic that uses the word "embroided". I don't know what that word means,
and googling for its definition repeatedly comes up with "embroidered". Is
that what those who use embroided mean? I'm just trying to make sure I am
understanding what is being written....
