That's quoted out of context. It was in a thread about enabling
importing C extensions from zipfiles, which I'm against. I don't
always write emails as if they were documents to be saved for
posterity. Sometimes I even say things that are contradictory, or not
right. Heck, I'm not the authority on wheels, so what I'm saying is at
best opinion.

Sorry if I confused you or gave you the wrong impression, but honestly
I don't have the time to review and vet my emails any more than I
currently do :-(
