What compromises would you suggest, Manoj?  I believe that this GR already
demonstrates that I have compromised in many key areas, enough that I am
being criticized by some for compromising too much.

I have said that there will be an impact.  I have even advanced several

doesn't communicate well.  That's my fault, but it doesn't mean that it
takes away merit from what I'm trying to do.
