The lack of response to my query suggests that it has not been well
researched. Or is that just because of the conference? Or did a lot of
subscribers not see the message (subject "just deserves")? I wonder,
because I no longer get copies of my messages sent to the list, despite
having my subscription options set up so I should see them.
