Subject: Re: logf enhancements

I appreciate the hard work you've done and look forward to the
incorporation of your patch.

However, you indicate that you haven't completed testing yet ("the
patch [...] might not compile without that"; assurance that the patch
won't break compiles wold be reassuring.

Also, it would be easier to appreciate if your email employed standard
spelling and punctuation.

Especially for our colleagues whose native languages are not English,
figuring out "i" ("I"), "u" ("you"), "iv" or "ive" ("I've"), "r"
("are"), "rekon" ("reckon"), "coz" ("because"), "wont" ("won't"), and
",,," ("..." unnecessary ellipses which should be replaced with
periods) makes understanding your email unnecessarily difficult.
