several of us know from personal experience. What I think Joe (and =
others) are trying to do is share some insights to help Rohit manage =
the process more effectively, and perhaps with less damage than we =
ourselves did. This is a very different thing than trying to abort or =
short-circuit the process, which appears to be your concern.
