Believe it or not, the latter and not the former. It has just taken
too @#$% long to get the DRUMS WG to finish up and shut down. I've
done what I can (including a couple of editorial passes on the SMTP

There have been no significant "politics" in the process, although
certainly a lot of personalities. But everyone got real tired before
