| Have a nice day Erik and I certainly hope you manage to dislodge
| from your posterior whatever it is that is making you so belligerent.

whatever your feelings may have been at that final point of your article,
your escalating hostilites are uncalled-for.  I found your article
predominantly destructive and I have no use for your destructivism.  your
repeated complaints about the limitations of recursion in Emacs does not
mesh with someone who reads manuals, which I infer from your hostile
ranting that I have insulted you gravely by implying.  I _would_ have had a
use for suggestions to improve the manual if you found it so lacking, but
you don't even give any reason for that.  there's nothing I can do to help
your situation.  I honestly thought you needed to know about those
variables since you sounded to frustrated, but you also sound a lot more
frustrated than somebody who wants to have a problem solved would do, and
so I tried to explain just why they are set so low as to limit your
experiments with recursion to the point where you feel the need to post
your negative experiences, beliefs, assumptions, whatever, but not nearly
enough to read the manual to find better ways experiment with recursion.

if you actually have something constructive to suggest for GNU Emacs 19.35,
code or manuals, let me know.  I'll make sure it makes it into the release
if it is sound advice, i.e., quite unlike the above quoted sentence.  it's
your call, since you have the problems.  I couldn't care less what you run
into if you don't read the manual, but I do care that users out there might
actually believe there are limitations that can't be relaxed.  OK?
