I don't have all the drafts handy, but it looks to me like 2nd
Quadrant never got mentioned _anywhere_ in the drafts.

Grepping through my relevant mail folder, the only mention I see of
2nd Quadrant as other than part of your email address was when Josh
Berkus was trying to point people to write useful things rather than
squabbling.  To wit:

  "As a compromise between Peter's perspective and mine/Andrew's, I
  think that we should focus on the features but name-drop.  So we
  need to work in company names at appropriate points, namely Fujitsu,
  Afilias, Red Hat, Open Source Development Labs, Command Prompt, 2nd
  Quadrant, and SRA-America (am I forgetting someone?).  The names
  should get across the multi-company involvement without dwelling on

That was kind of "pre-drafts."

Personally, I didn't have "2nd Quadrant" in mind; when thinking of
PITR, it's your name that comes to mind, not the company name.

Perhaps a company has been forgotten, and needs to be added...
let name="cbbrowne" and tld="" in String.concat "@" [name;tld];;
The large print giveth and the small print taketh away.
