One point I left out of my earlier comments is also relevant here --
the communication itself should really be done on the mailing list
anyway (rather than a direct email to the author).  That way, everyone
will be able to benefit from seeing the question asked and answered.

My personal policy is to redirect personal appeals for help to the
appropriate user mailing list.  I would encourage other developers who
receive individual help requests to do the same.
