If you had read http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-12/0319.shtml before
firing off this response, you would see that I already addressed this
point.

Please do not go through a mailing list thread one message at a time and
generate eight responses in rapid succession. On a busy list with
complicated topics, we need participants to force the conversation
structure to be linear, not branching, and to make their messages
consider everything said in the thread so far.

See http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-11/0723.shtml and responses for
another treatment of this mailing list ettiquette issue.
