I'm not sure whether you're referring to my side comment in
<201003121054.o2CAswXl006159 at zen.crypt.org>:
   I notice the sequence has also somehow acquired the 'new' keyword,
   which seems very wrong.

It certainly wasn't intended as criticism, but it is a use of the keyword
that I've either never noticed before, or forgotten about. Klaus Brockhaus
was quick to correct my mistake.

Apologies if I've caused you any offence.
