The copy and paste made for strange spacing; many word pairs are mashed

But that's a bug report. Here's a love report: Thank you for passing on
this idea!

For those using Debian or derived operating systems, the ‘reportbug’
tool has the following option:

  -k, --kudos           send appreciative email to the maintainer,
                        rather than filing a bug report

So use the standard system tool for sending a love report! :-)
