Yes, I saw it later. I subscribe using the digest version, so sometimes I
don't get updated posts for awhile. I posted this in between, so I hadn't
seen any later posts yet. I ask that the list understand that. It will
undoubtedly happen again, as I have no control over when the digest comes
in, meaning I may be Re'ing to posts in a previous digest.

If you don't use the digest version, you wouldn't know that, so I ask for
patience. If it looks like I haven't yet understood something, it may be
because I simply haven't yet been able to read subsequent Re's.
