[OS X TeX] TeX is not for the faint of heart

I /did/ that.
I mean I rewrote what you posted.
Then, for some obscure reason, I didn't send it to you. (I certainly 
couldn't have edited the TeX version of your page.)
But then when, earlier on, I described "Stage I, ... Stage II ...", I 
was about to paste a piece of it when something caught my eye and forced 
me to read it in my newfound knowledge. It was awful, I had written some 
terrible nonsense and I was glad I hadn't sent it to you as I do not 
wish to look like more of a fool than I am.

Once again, (really?) I suggest that no one, myself and "m" included, 
ought to demand or request of /anyone/ that they write the appropriate 
stuff. Why couldn't it be a collective endeavour, I mean, you know, 
something like the development of Open Source?
