Hi, Paul.  Thanks for the feedback!

Should I confess, at least for the R project, I sometimes miss the 
subtleties between wish-list items and bugs -- not only for this one, 
but in general.  We surely wish bugs to be addressed: this, I get :-).

But I sometimes feel we exaggerate the exegesis of the distinction 
between wishes and bugs, as this exercise is a bit irritating, without 
being fruitful.  I wonder why the distinction is deemed so important.

Merely chatting, of course.   Keep happy!
