But we love being off topic!

Also if you change the subject line to demarcate a branch in the
discussion (and mark it as off topic), that is completely acceptable as
well.  This in fact was done eventually by Marko.  That leaves the
original part of the thread to carry on its merry way.  Of course I am
assuming you read your email using a threaded email client that shows
you the nested tree structure of the replies, instead of the really
strange 1-dimensional gmail-style conversations that lose that structure

But I digress.  We get sidetracked rather easily around here.
