I was actually staying on-topic with what I wanted to address: namely
the thin ice that you are walking with your posting style.

Frankly, I don't have to justify my opinion.  I understand how the
package generation would have to work and don't see a major benefit to

debating with you about why it is or isn't a good idea.
