Indeed you are <wink>.  The truth is more depressing, though:  I have
so little time to answer questions now, except on some weekends, that
I generally stick to questions only I *can* answer.  For example, I
used to answer all questions about Python dicts, but more than a few
people are intimately familiar with that code now, so now I usually
leave dict questions alone.  But very few people are (or ever were)
intimately familiar with Python's arithmetic code, so I still try to
field questions about that.

I don't know anything about it -- but I'd reply if I was the only one
who did, and if it were a weekend <wink>.
