Sorry, I see now that I was reading the inflection incorrectly. Its
perfectly clear to me now that he was saying that.

Part of my problem was having posted my second message before
receiving his post (which was written before my second message), I
thought he was replying to that second message and was attempting to
disagree or provide some new method. Now I see that he just happened
to be suggesting the same thing.

So I'm stuck hoping the user does the right thing.
