(1)	The frequency of wishes on the list seemed to have abated and many  
were being fulfilled so I eventually felt there wasn't much more of a  
point to keep track of them.

(2)	I re-posted the above (from May 11, 2009) only to point out that,  
traditionally, on this list, wishes were not considered as putdowns.

(2)	I gave the original mails to facilitate re-searches.

(3)	As for those that were *my* wishes, F1 and F2, The point was that  
since I work on one chapter at a time and my Mac is old and slow (like  
myself), waiting for it to be LatexMarked Typeset was a bit lengthy,  
even for me. So, I Save the chapters and LatexMarked Typeset the whole  
book only once in a (long) while. Now I use Command-Shift-L which does  
exactly what I wanted: Save and update the Preview but nothing else.

Best regards
