If it is all your own code then of course, you can do as you wish. But
as I pointed out, the base classes you said you were using were
originally based on other classes written by myself and others.

Thank you.

You did. However, the code was not half-brewed, nor did it behave badly
in any way that I'm aware of. It was thoroughly tested and has since
proven to work well.

The reason I re-added the conditionals was to allow you the option of
using that version of the code despite the fact I couldn't understand
why it was so important to you.

I honestly never received such an email, and would have been glad to
accept had I done. As for leaving the team, you unsubscribed from all
the mailing lists and said something to the effect of 'I'm never going
to work on pgAdmin again' which I took as a resignation from the team.

If I misunderstood what you were saying, then I sincerely apologise and
would be keen to put things right if you are willing. You were an
extremely valued member of the team whose work was appreciated by
hundreds of people, myself included.

Regards, Dave.
