An off-line correspondent wrote me tonight to comment

Well, it was *not* meant to be sarcastic in any way whatsoever.

I'm very sorry if I've given any offense here, because there was
no intention in any way, shape, manner, or form for that to be
any other than a clear confirmation of what someone was 
saying (I think Stathis) that we would always be wise to proceed
with great caution when being augmented!
