You asked for help, but you obviously don't really want the help
that's available. So just commit it when you're ready, and we'll
either like it or not.
I don't really care; I have no doubt that the 18000 line patch you
sent me is far better for my purposes than what we currently have.
But I am not going to be able to reverse engineer architecture from
that in a reasonable amount of time, so I'm not even going to try.
(That doesn't mean I'm not going to study the code, it just means it
will probably be 6 months to a year before I'm ready to give you the
kind of help you want.)
look, stephen. i do want your help. it's just that your "help" has
mostly consisted of statements asserting that i'm doing some bad thing X
that i shouldn't be doing, when i'm not in fact doing that. it seems
like everything i say, you manage to negatively misconstrue. sometimes
your statements are contradictory; e.g. before you accused me of pushing
things out too fast because i didn't completely "make charsets die", now
you accuse me of being too slow! even apart from the consistent
negativity of your statements, i often have a very hard time figuring
out what point you're trying to make; the sense i get is that you have
some major misunderstandings of what i'm doing. that is why i suggested
you try reading the code. yet your response is just "sorry, don't have
time", along with further sarcasm. do you not see the persistent
sarcasm in comments like "you obviously don't really want the help
that's available"? after hrvoje's complaints i've been trying very hard
to be civil to everyone, including you, but it only seems to trigger
further incivility from you.
