That's right; I wrote it up in detail, provided patches when asked to do
so, provided test scripts to demonstrate the correctness of those
patches, answered every question and objection raised about it.
And then waited patiently to see if any notice would be taken of it. In
silence. For eight months.
Hearing nothing, I concluded that my previous mode of argument was not
persuasive, and decided to try something else. That disappeared into
thin air. I wondered whether anybody thought that was a problem, and
asked. So here we are.
What could possibly be longer and more sordid than that?
