Probably Gmail sucks at sending plain text. It sucks also for reading
plain text.

This is so f*****g cool you almost brought me to tears! David, where
have you been hiding all these years and what are you going to fix
next in GCC?

A follow-up note seems just clutter at this point. It was just there
because we could not give a precise location (this is why we say the
awkward "near initialization..."). Your previous proposal is just
perfect. How would it work if the '~' and the '^' are on separate
lines?

Now that we can, we should be :-)
