Well, if we're all not using line editors, then having all that text
there shouldn't hurt.  The redundant copy was, of course, an error on my
part (sorry).  There is also somewhat of a tradition of allowing large
messages to build up occasionally.  The likelihood of this happening is
inversely correlated with the seriousness of the subject matter.

Please note that, to save space, I have excerpted and condensed your
original message above.
