Hey, Parker, I apologize to you that it takes me a while to do such 
things.  Rather than assuming bad faith on my part, I recommend assuming 
good faith.  Remember, I respond to dozens of different kinds of things 
from many different projects every day.  I wrote to you to ask for diffs 
because I am interested in the problem you raised, and I will look into 
it.  It's a shame that you have chosen to be hostile about it, but I am 
very sorry that I can't do more. :(

Right.  Well, I am sorry you feel that way.
