    I apologize if my attempt to use humor to illustrate a desirable feature
    was interpreted as harassment. This was not my intention.

    My intention was to suggest a desirable (at least for me) feature. Even
    if it is to be rejected by the project leaders, this will at least be a
    conscious decision with good reasons - rather than an overlooked feature.
