Oops; I forgot to put the smiley on that. It was supposed to be a humorous reference to a comment Guido made in private e-mail about the Dr. Dobbs article I wrote on decorators.

Without that context, the above sentence sounds like some sort of snippy remark that I did not intend it to be. Sorry. :(
