Your analogy sucks big time. I asked if there were any plans to improve an
already existing function. Not new functionality. The subversion site offers
web based browsing of the source, but it's very basic. Asking if there were
plans to extend this capability is not about going from a toothbrush to a
razor. It's about going from a bad toothbrush to a good one.
If there were no such plan, a simple "no" would be just fine...

So you CAN speak to how intuitive the ViewCVS interface is for new users...

I did. Nothing happened. I'll try ViewCVS again, though, as it is extremely
clear to me that cmpilato have no plans for this functionality :-)

I guess I set my goal to high when expecting a simple, polite yes/no answer.
Irony is a great thing when it bites or explains. This was just pathetic.
