With trepidation, I write to ask what the appropriate forum is for
suggesting language improvements -- and I don't mean introducing
redundant bracketing for block delimitation.  However, recent threads
have persuaded me that this probably isn't the forum for my lame
suggestions: you guys are busy enough.  I would have talked to people
at the conference, but then the weather and a client emergency meant
that all I got for my fee was an email acknowledgement.  Next year,
