I wondered about that too...(if that was it)
but I think the exuberance of being able to
script the find/change is totally justified.
you can't have too much automation, too many
examples or enough right click menus for me.

personal email to an author is rarely welcome
as a bug report! although in this case a tossup.
if you've checked the sourceforge forums,
you would see the nature of the response
time to problems of any kind including wild eyed
spitballing of ideas is nearly immediate.

not wanting the job of channeling EKR,
you must realize the level of spam a project like
Leo generates would render any email address
unusable in short time.
really, it's a painless few clicks & keystrokes,
if you can get over your initial reaction.
since spam isn't going away, you have to admit
this is one of few good solutions.
there are additional bug reports and a diary of
the Leo dev cycle in LeoPy.leo and LeoDocs.leo
and an active forum on sourceforge.
