I do not wish to argue with you. Arguments are unproductive (although
sometimes difficult to avoid). I apologise for anything I've said that
might have taken us from discussion and into argument.
You and I disagree on the relative merits of embed and extend, and also
on the importance of providing typesetting as a service.
These questions are of great importance to our community. Perhaps one
day soon, and perhaps somewhere else, we will have a productive
discussion about them.
Reluctantly, I agree with you that this discussion will not take place
here and now.
with best regards
