Exactly. I should point out that I'm really glad that you're working on
Squat, and I'm especially pleased by the conflagration of disc packs that
surrounds it: it's precisely because I know that the 100% solutions are
being worked on, that I'm comfortable releasing 80% solutions the rest of
us can use in the meantime. I'm well aware of the dangers of solutions
being "good enough to eat their children"...
