 ... eep. The PR was not meant to be condescending or anything else of
 the sort. I apologise for that. All that I wanted to accomplish was to
 give the people reading the PR an account from my perspective of the
 issue with the port. I definitely couldn't do as good a job as you have
 with maintaining the port.

 pejorative meaning "stupid and unsophisticated".  -- Ken Thompson
