Actually, yes it was.  Proper netiquette when submitting to a technical 
list is to have a single topic per message.  This makes it easy to track 
issues individually, without the messiness that occurs from bundling 
several issues together in a single missive.  One large email with a big 
lump of diffs is much less clear, and takes substantially more effort to 
parse:  Are the patches independent?  Which fix corresponds to which 

Being new to this group, I am simply acting as my experience dictates 
and discussing these issues in the way I feel is best.  If my 
infamiliarity with the group causes me to occasionally act against what 
is common practice here, I will appreciate it when you inform me that I 
have done so and what the proper approach should be.
