I never said that.  I said auto-updates were bad and agreed that it was 
right that they not be included.  Auto-notification is included, and 
just needs to be turned on.

Incidentally, another problem with auto-updates is many people actually 
end up relying on bugs, or at least on features that were never 
officially supported.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
