It may have been in the tone of "I'm busy, it can wait" and I didn't read
it correctly, but it certainly didn't help.

Naw, that was ages ago. I had almost forgotten about it. We're talking
around 1995. The point was that we could get sponsorship of development
efforts, and I had been willing to put in time & effort on that. Andrew
chose not to go that path, and so there's not much way to put my money
where my mouth is. Time & effort are more precious than money these days ;(
