Well, he presented a technical problem (indentation for lambda suites),
and my main point was to address it with a suggestion he may not have seen
(or why wouldn't he have mentioned it at least as a dumb failing attempt
at solving the problem he was discussing?)

IMHO it does solve the problem (modulo stupidities that I am prepared to have
my nose rubbed in if I missed something) and was on topic.

If a solution to a problem that Guido presents as an obstacle pisses him off,
I'd be surprised, and disappointed.

>Make-the-hurting-stop-ly y'rs,
I'm sorry you're hurting. That was not my intent ;-/

BTW, I never CC anyone unless they have asked me to. Unless gmane is doing it
automatically, it shouldn't be happening.
