Thanks, I will try to do more of these messages as I make/see changes
like this in the trunk.

I think it should be. I think very few people read the checkin messages,
and they seldom contain "big picture" narrative anyhow. 

I think messages here should be sent when there are big picture impacts.
It can act like informal historical documentation.

We have weekly "jam sessions" where we often hash out new ideas.
Certainly the CVS is commented, but it is at quite a low level. I think
we (ZC'ers) all know we can do a better job desseminating our ideas to
the community. It really a question of bandwidth (or lack thereof). 

On the bright side, your message has inspired me to be a bit more of a
"narrator". It's always glad to hear when people actually read something
I write and get something out of it.
