For example: in the 9r0 release is missed the new "file" command from
A. Costa. This is a "lacked action", i.e. deliberate
action. With this action my unconscious revealed the truth: following
Freud, I implicitily refused code better of mine!

A this argument I can oppose other: I added code from M. Angel,
T. Poindexter and other, all more ingenious compared my standard.

But, finally, it is that my email a full "lacked action", because
it shows I'm in need of explanations and excuses, so I'm surely guilty.

Ah, Freud, Great Man. Freud is from Austria, it's true?

remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
