No, my point is that the init system shells loaded into this shotgun
are known to be explosive, already causing mass injury and even
casualty to the project, and there is no reason to think they are any
less volatile today.

Declining to rule is a perfectly legitimate outcome and reason enough
to close this request, but that option unfortunately doesn't exist on
this ballot.

Please consider not pulling the trigger again?

Best wishes,
Mike
