Probably not but your past efforts do not entitle you, or anyone else to 
arrogantly belittle others OR to accuse them of expecting others to " do the 
heavy lifting" when, as in this case, Aryeh has already said he proposes to 
do any major coding himself.

I suspect antagonistic responsesfrom some people are more about wounded pride 
(i.e - astonishment why should anyone propose to improve on the procedures, 
systems and engineering to which they contributed in the past!)

Sp please either make contributions that are intended to help the current 
process rather than boring everyone with negativity
