Just this: any principle (and I love principles[1]) *must* be
re-evaluable.  We have to be open to criticism (that's a give), even
criticism of our principles.

I have nothing more to add to this flamewar.[2]

[1] I'm both a *very* strong believer in Free Software (I have vrms
running, and I always try to reduce the list (alas, Mozilla is not yet
ready for prime-time)) and a christian anarchist (ask me if you wonder
what that is... it's a christian, basically).
