Lets see here.  In all the quoted things the furthest in is Dale.  This
is where the 'flame war fodder' began.

I'm not convinced, and it was mean to just go off cc-ing this to devel.
Do you see lots of people jumping up and down to tell you anything?

Why not make your tone into a feature request if it didn't exist yet

new iteration.  You'd wonder why developers listen to users if they all
acted like that.
