Dear Marco,

It is always possible to do things better, but given many choices, one has
to choose ...

given a 300% increase in blogreaders in nine months, a top 0.2% twitter
retweet rate in 6 months, and nearing 10 million pageviews on the wiki, we
must be doing something right

could we do better, certainly, with help and assistance, but with only
critique?, unlikely ..
