My apologies.
I didn't realize that the request Matt sent was to your development list. 
That explains the ambiguity...
I'll pop over to Matts desk and smack him one with the proverbial cluebat.<g> 
<NEVER disturb programmers with spam...>

I, and many  others at Chilliware have been Gimp fans for years, so by NO 
means do we intend guys do some excellent work, and the community 
needs you...we just want to make sure that mom & pop, shopping at CompUSA , 
get a chance to see you also.

Thanks Austin for the gracious response btw.

Sorry to disturb you guys, and please, if you're at LWE in NYC next week, 
stop by and say hi.
