I agree with your statement.

You aren't contradicting Joel though - he did not say anything about
/too/ inconvenient.

Initially I was very happy with having a sponsor doublecheck my work.
But after some months I was reasonable confident in my abilities as
packager and I got the impression that it was starting to become a
waste of time for both of us. (That is when I started the NM process.)
But this did not suddenly stop me from appreciating doublechecking
when I thought it was useful (co-maintained/difficult packages).
