I this different from the file sg.html that I have here? it was a very short

I haven't been in touch with anyone except on this list and through some
private e-mails.
I also would like to show something first before I even THINK about taking
any responsibilities. if my general idea of what things should look and work
like doesn't have a majority, it would be counter-productive to maintain
something that I don't agree on in most of its parts.

please allow me to give an outline of what I propose as a style guide first,
before taking any "official" steps.

I have been told that this list was very low-traffic for some time. maybe he
just thought it died? it wouldn't hurt to contact him and ask, would it?

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
