I'll take a look at it over the next week or so.  I'll run it by you and JP
before I add to the FAQ.

Thanks for the vote of confidence but I doubt that.  I tend to work in bursts
depending on how much free time I have.  JP's contributions are much more
consistent than mine not to mention the years of coding he did before I joined
the project.  I'll continue contribute as best I can.  I'm not going to let a
few bad eggs (sorry, I couldn't resist) spoil the satisfaction I get from
working with the KiCad development team.
