Second, the less-than-1.00 numbering is, as usual, indicative that the

Third, I explained this in the Release Notes. I suggest people read

To repeat, I felt it was important to get out what I had. Many people
had been bugging^H^H^H^H asking me about it for the past few months,
so I decided to issue what I had in time for the 2nd Anniversary
meeting. I missed that deadline by less than 20 hours.

Yes, there's a mix of styles, partly prose essays, partly enumerated
