I have had several people explain to me that my comments were
out-of-place and out-of-turn. When I wrote them originally I thought I
was going from experience of previous releases and thought I was being
matter of fact. In rereading I realized I was crass and grumpy. My
un-reserved apologies for that. I should have either not posted or
waited, reread and rewritten.
