Thanks Brane,

no :) plain fact is that I didn't think that changing code I messed up
within the branch and then fixed as significant.

I sort of see the branch as a semi-private space, where I do stuff that you
can look at, but that doesn't have much meaning (hence me terming N changes
in M files as 'trivial' -- it's jst a bit of of umm ascii) until it's good
and ready for me to invite scrutiny. Privacy for patzers :)

Maybe what is needed is a personal commit space where I can reign supreme.
(fact is, my computer is ancient (but nice and familiar to use) and I don't
trust it.)

My other problem is that Apache code carries a copyright, so I'm reluctant
to use newfangled things like clouds and their fancy (loooong) usage
legalese that could get me (and Apache) into trouble. (some ppl just like
to see the world burn and the lawyers earn).

I also hope not to give ppl too much useless work, hence me leaving off
certain log messages off b/c they really are a waste of human time, it's
just where I goofed and not worth anyone's time. That's the main concept
here, I'm trying to save your time, probably in the wrong way :)
