This is a particularly foolish response when one considers Helmut's
record of improving many Lisp programmers' lot through his active
development of the SLIME environment for emacs.

For the sake of balance, I wish to make it clear that I do not
consider recognition of the fact that it might be tricky to implement
certain features in Lisp in a fashion useful to the general community
grounds for excommunication, and also to express my earnest wish that
Helmut doesn't stick with Erlang to the exclusion of Lisp, as the Lisp
community would thereby lose a good contributor.
