At least you speak for me. All the more as most (if not all) of the bugs I've
reported have been fixed quite quickly (not to mention many questions answered).
I can imagine that working on a job as awaited as LuaTeX might be stressful, and
perhaps you sometimes hallucinate the sound of eager users rasping at your front
door, or wake up at night screaming "That node list isn't right!", but I
honestly think nobody's blaming you for anything, Taco, quite the contrary.
