The word I left was the only thing that interested me in your whole
post.  It was a simple "No." reply to one of my earlier statements, and
I replied by correcting myself and admitting I misattributed an
intention to you.  How can that be hostile?  Also, people will
presumably have access to the conversion, it's not secret.

Stating disagreement is not the same as disparaging.  Also, as I wrote,
I have no intention of convincing you to change CC Mode.  I already
spent a good deal of effort trying to do so in the past, I gave up, and
I have no plans or energy topersist..  I'd much rather invest in
alternatives, sorry :-), but that's being honest, not hostile.

I'm not spoiling anything Alan, don't overreact.  The feature I'm
proposing is for all Emacs modes, and is related to the past discussion
(was it really July? perhaps) in the sense that some people brought up
the "flashing/blinking" behaviour in connection to it.

You're of course well welcome to discuss the merits/flaws of my
proposal, but outside the scope of CC Mode (unless of course you show it
has some adverse effect _specific_ to CC Mode).
