While I might, eventually (depending on getting myself organised,
figuring out how and where to do it, and checking that someone else
hasn't already said the same thing, etc.).  This was the first place
that I heard that plan, so I replied in the same arena.  And as others
will say, it gives a chance for the thoughts to be mulled over before
making a bug report.
