...yeh, good dialogue there:  point/counterpoint, I like...it's 
generally understood that cvs head (or as some people say, "top of 
tree") is potentially unstable...it's a simple matter to regress to the 
previous version, and I think you miss the point of collaboration; that 
is, "people working together on a single project"...

...yeh, I didn't send you a patched version of pd for osx either...I 
did mention that you needed the cvs head for gem...

...wow, never heard of it, so how would I remember it?  And please 
don't expect that I have any more time to fool with this/you:  I 
suspect that all the developers on pd are "quite busy"...

...well, you already did just above, but with your demeanor, it's not 
expected:  if you can't admit you just fly off the handle, you'll just 
keep repeating the same tired behaviors and further alienate yourself 
from people who tried to collaborate...

...sure (starts working on other fruitful collaborations)
