My original point was to find out what was different between the 02/03
and 02/09 snapshots since there did not appear to be any. Then my new
point was to question the reason for generating new snapshots if
nothing changed.

Why is it that you and other developers are so touchy about the book
and its condition and people pointing out things that could be done
different, better or whatever? Why do you and the others insist on
thinking there is nothing wrong with the book and so unwilling to
improve it?
