That remark was equally in jest. It's nice to have those instructions,
but not essential.

I was thinking about Rockbox to get my feet wet. That project has its
own web site. In fact I'm searching for something even smaller and
simpler still, such as Contiki or Nuttx to minimize the amount of C
code and to get as far as possible away from the usual red tape.

Next time tell them I will be deeply honored if they use the name of a
certain ancient Dutch delicacy rather than a random number such as
4758 or 4759.

The number suggested a certain progression towards 4760, the one I really want.

I understand Linux is important, but not to me.
