I recently finished (I hope) a new major-mode for writing NetRexx. It's 60kb

I don't think you'll be blamed for it.
It's really not that large.  But note that many newsservers simply ignore
large messages, so I recommend you post a URL instead.
Other people disagree and think the full source is better because it then
gets archived as part of gnu.emacs.source archive, so if you post a URL,
make sure that the location will "live for ever".
In any case, a good thing to do is to also put the package in

Thanks, I'll do both

If you really want to contact me, then replace the "I see you" text by its three letter accronym, ICU.
