... but wouldn't mean the same, of course, because that would be too easy.
Keep it in English please.  "Deutsch" would be incorrect in this context
anyway.  *If* you want to use it, say "deutsche quotes", but that's bad
English ;-)

I'm wondering if we should add a "WARNING: Contains potentially offensive
texts"(*) to the sdesc in setup.hint.  Not that I like the idea, but it
seems appropriate to avoid more discussion on the list.  What do you think?

Oh, yes, the package itself looks ok to me.  I'll upload it after you,
Yitzchak, have said a word about the sdesc.


(*) And, of course, "May contain nuts".
