Of course this is a rather trivial instance and I don't think
anyone means to overly sensitive to the issue but I do think
it would be most curteous to make such remarks at the time of
posting a patch and to refer to such earlier work if at all
possible. It is often unpleasant to see work being re-done
without any attribution.

Given the current fractious sitation, I think we need to guard
against making it worse. It is Tim's stated intention to continue
to merge build-improvements into Silver.
