First of all, if you complain about this, then do !NOT! quote the whole 
fscking digest you received! You should not quote anything irrelevant 
to what you want to say anyway.

Second of all, if you don't like long emails, do !NOT! set the digest 
option. You *will* get long emails that way.

<sarcasm> Replies to you will be long emails, if only for your name. 

Third of all, this is a *DEVEL* list. Things discussed on this list are 
not supposed to be "I would like you to implement this or that feature" or 
"How do I switch off my computer?", but CODE.

If you want to discuss code, it is extremely annoying if you have to 
download it separately, and cut n' paste the relevant piece. Rather, you 
should be able to quote the mail, delete the irrelevant parts, and comment 
on it.

This is a proven best practice on lkml (Linux kernel mailing list) since 
ages, and I fail to see why it should not work here.
