i can easily believe both of the explanations (or fool myself into it :-)

but without feedback and even if the feedback is mainly of the type, please
explain this better i don't understand, it is awfully hard to write about
this. and if i'm not able to finally get this into a shape where most of you
on the list do understand it and/or think it is being useful this is doomed,
or not?

that is, unless there are the wrong people on the list (or for the wrong
reasons) both of which i doubt knowing many of the names or having seen the
contributions in the past.

what i mainly want to say is, that this list only works with participation, it
is *not* the announcement list for the latex3 project but rather your forum to
bring in new ideas (as well as to help us getting our ideas into useful shapes
for you)

as you might notice most of my posts are currently written late at night or on
weekends which says something about the amount of time i currently have to
work on these issues. as a result my replies to any posts are slow anyway, so
i'm quite happy if this list is not suddenly exploding with 20 or more
messages per day. but if this work should come to a successful finish (and
right now i think there is a good chance) we need as much help as you (plural)
can provide.

sorry for the aside   :-)
