See what I mean by people second guessing?
That's also why I haven't been giving much justification, it just invites
even more second guessing and consideration of alternatives and confusion
Trust me, I've thought of most of these things already. Most of the
changes that would be really terrific also happen to require some
significant changes in other infrastructure, which are underway but not
yet done, and shouldn't be done when we're trying to release.
Please, save it for after the release.
