Yes, we did consult Martin as well, and he had some concerns about the
proposal that prevented him from signing on to it as-is.  That's fine;
and many of those concerns are being discussed now in this thread.  I
felt a little silly listing the DPL candidates as supporting it without
also listing the current DPL, but we'd already asked the DPL candidates
about it before Martin got back to us, so I was bound to feel a little
silly either way. ;)

I was a dumbass and forgot to send it to him for review like I was
supposed to (sorry, Joey!).  He was originally invited to join us in
Vancouver, but wasn't able to make it; I'm still very much interested in
knowing what his thoughts are on this idea.
