How about spending less time on philosophical eMails?

I am sure Ralf and Denis will pull out their handkerchief any time
soon now.

I am sure Ralf and Denis appreciate contributions other than code as

Remember, though, if you don't send your own solutions to a problem,
then it is a whole lot better to send in the problems you want to

might want to implement it:

      If you present problems, you get solutions,
      if you present solutions, you get problems.
