I think it was more an "implicit" refusal than anything else. You had mentioned that there as a major commercial vendor who was going to base a browser release on 0.9.4 and then didn't answer anybody's questions about the statement.

So, to paraphrase (infer), there was a major vendor who approached you to say that they would base their browser on 0.9.4 but that they wished you to keep it secret. Which is why you've never mentioned their name. (That's fair - but it would have cleared up a lot of confusion if you'd simply made the statement that you weren't allowed to comment any further and/or that you'd been told to keep it secret. Or, it would have made even *more* sense if you'd never said anything at all.) Further, if we all keep an eagle eye on checkins to the 0.9.4 branch to CVS we might be able to figure out who it was ourselves.
