Hey all.  Just a minor correction to something I wrote, which I want to 
correct because the code in question is confusing and errors in 
discussion can only lead to more confusion.  When I wrote:

I should have written, in the last part, "Else, it is a pulled package 
which IS resolvable".

Also, sorry for any poor formatting in my emails.  I am using Mozilla 
Thunderbird and I'm finding its compose window to be pretty terrible.  I 
only send my emails in plain text format, I have the option set this 
way, so I don't know why it makes my editor use 
non-fixed-width-plain-text format.  It's hard to tell what my email is 
actually going to look like, and Thunderbird's "graphical" handling of 
quotes is very difficult to work with.  Does anyone know how to make 
Thunderbird use just plain text in its editing window, including 
standard quote marks (>) instead of this graphical nonsense?
