This topic is not my itch, so "however I want" would not be a good
instruction to me--The lazy one in me would be tempted to say "ok,
then I'd drop it altogether" ;-)

I am sure the typo "[^\s]+[\w-]by" in the one we just saw was merely
because you rushed it out without double checking. We are in
pre-release feature freeze so there is no need to rush. I'd prefer
to see a final version that is carefully proof-read by the author.
