I have personally had to look at depth at times at some of Heiko's packages
and have the greatest respect for what he dies in trying to make the whole
lot work together well across all the international standards and other
difficult bits which are on no standard at present and feel that he and the
others involved deserve our greatfulness, respect and honour for the work
that they do.

So I see these kind of perhaps cavalier and personally directed remarks as
counter productive - Heiko does not make the standard(s) but has done a
tremendously enormous amount to make everything work for everyone- working
with the very difficultidiosyncrasies of what is on the International stage
at present.

" Now we clearly
need to start on Adobe (and Heiko !). <

I can not even see that  in good humour and really believe it is needless
waste of a genuine hard working developer's time to be singled out in that
manner for no real purpose as far as I can discern - other than perhaps
making the writer feel self important?
