I'd like to turn this into the positive message that a) people  
watching and helping that things aren't falling through the cracks on  
the list is a Good Thing, much appreciated, and I don't think makes  
anyone feel guilty (not me at least), and b) this should serve as a  
reminder to all lurkers and casual users out there that you can help  
out already simply by answering questions on the list rather than  
waiting for one of the core devs to come along and do so, whether they  
are extremely busy or not. Everyone can and should do the helping.

So, in that sense, thanks to both Rob and Mark for your contributions  
- they're valued. As for the influential persons, I don't think there  
are any here worth paying much attention to other than those who by  
the nature of volunteering to do some stuff influence what gets done  
and what doesn't :-)

My $0.02.
