I'm in line with David. Thomas, if you care about the topic, you must be
interested in convincing the one who can make a change on Ubuntu's policy.
And the person in question is Matt. If you scare your only interlocutor
with Ubuntu, then you can be sure that you won't get what you want.

And what's interesting is the actual result, not the discussion itself !
(Or reworded: avoid flames if you want a positive outcome, otherwise it
would look like you're only interesed in the confrontation)
