        I posit that the reason that we have not been swamped is that
 this committee has been dormant. I suspect that once it becomes
 active, that would not be the case. One case was presented on IRC:
 remembering past instances of bug terrorism and extreme disagreement,
 there was a scenario that some one could use this as a m,eans of
 second guessing any decision made else where.

        However, since I obviously am in the minority, I guess one can
 publish that once can get the ctte into action by merely sending a
 mail to this list. Hopefully I would never be in the positoin to say
 "I told you so".

 X windows: Something you can be ashamed of. 30% more entropy than the
 leading window system. The first fully modular software
 disaster. Rome was destroyed in a day. Warn your friends about
 it. Climbing to new depths.  Sinking to new heights. An accident that
 couldn't wait to happen. Don't wait for the movie. Never use it after
 a big meal. Need we say less? Plumbing the depths of human
 incompetence. It'll make your day. Don't get frustrated without
 it. Power tools for power losers. A software disaster of Biblical
 proportions. Never had it.  Never will. The software with no visible
 means of support. More than just a generation behind.  Hindenburg.
 Titanic.  Edsel. X windows.
