  I am not sure it's sad. I  would just like to celebrate the fact that we
have a scientific publication that will make a lot of purists very happy
and perhaps benefit the rest of us with knoledge we can all benefit from.
And have a more general publication which meet a lot of other needs of a
more genral hosta public.  Cheers for both.
