I am never upset with what you do. You have a very good and interesting

I only replied because you mentioned, if not, I would only notice
anything when upgrading, and doubt very much if I would ask anything.

On the positive side, it is interesting to know what happened (make
clean), so I will be careful. to never do that for this purpose. Another
good side of this is that I was doubting if the names I was using were
confusing, but it seems that we can continue doing that.

So, thanks for having had the patience to re-measure.

Sorry if I seemed upset, but I was really not.

Actually, I am in debt with you, you have always been helping me a lot.
One of the last, you solved an old problem I had with the ink levels of
my printer, introduced me to escputil, and tought me to build a custom
one in my printer server (Lubuntu, not BLFS, and you helping me). It was
a long exchange of mails, and even upstream you contacted.
