I take exception to this statement. The binutils maintainers may
not be PE hackers, and it's fair to say that most of the gurus
tend not to pay much attention PE as to say ELF, but saying that 
they have "bad attitude" is entirely unfair. If I ever said anything 
that may have suggested this "bad attitude", I certainly didn't mean 
it in a negative way and I apologize for any misunderstanding.

I for one have not submmitted some of the patches that may fix
problems in the PE target, and certainly have not lobbied as hard
as I could have to get some of the queued changes in. My usual
excuse is the lack of time. Please let's not point fingers, it's
not productive.

I'll read and respond to the rest when I get back from vacation.
