Hi John --

It looks like this went to the public DWARF discussion mailing list. 
I'm CCing the DWARF Committee mailing list.

Thanks for your participation on the DWARF Committee.  You contributions 
have been greatly appreciated.

As a result, debugger issues and DWARF are not part of my work-life and I can't give them as much attention as they deserve.  Further, my company will continue to be represented on the Committee, and represented by someone who is actively working on debug-code generation.
