I hadn't noticed these flames --
maybe my ignition temperature is higher than yours.
But I think pdftex is a fantastic achievement,
and as one struggling to get my WiFi card working under linux-2.5.74,
I would rather pdftex were left in Thanh's safe hands
(never know which bit of his name is the appropriate one)
than look to Torvalds for his assistance!
