Perhaps a slow ramrod, but I am a ramrod. I think. Ummm, Ceri,
what am I again? Hmmmm.
find projects/newdocuments -type f -name '*' | xargs wc -l
Ack. I'm not a ramrod, I'm a loser ...

At this point I'm not sure if I stepped forward or everyone else
stepped backward. But I guess I'll look over it. I want a few
more things to keep me busy this week and next.

We need pf documentation. That alone is enough reason to go
through with the effort.

The unfortunate part is that we are tired, busy, and overworked
committers. Well, not all of us. Some people commit so much
that I wonder about them. Yet, I used to be the same way so
I can't pick on anyone in particular without pointing a
at my own head.
Honestly, enough joking aside, you get everything done to a
point where you are happy with it and I'll look it over for
you. I'm sure others will also. :)
