They keep threatening it, and it keeps not happening. In the meantime, we
can use this time to our advantage, preparaing our vocal chords for the
eventual screaming fits and wails of agonizing pain. ;)

Since enough time has gone by since I last whined, let me just take this
opportunity to say, in a completely calm, diplomatic, and
non-confrontational way: "Ruby-style code blocks would be nice."

 ( ) Don't beg for code blocks again in the next three days
 ( ) Don't beg for code blocks again in the next week
