Ah, then in that case I apologize for my response.  At times it is
difficult to grasp subtle sarcasm from sincerity in emails, and I often
lean towards sarcasm.

I wouldn't walk away from your ideas.  The reason people aren't falling
head over heels for them is that LTS takes work.  Lot's of unglamorous,
often not fun work.  If it's something you'd really like to see,
then you'll have to really work at it to make it happen.  If you do
write up a proposal that takes the comments you've received so far into
account then we'll listen.
