For the record William responded publicly to a private message (clearly
tagged that way as it started with "private reply" in the first line) and
deliberately cut the rest of my answer! Here it is:

(so William Pitcock and Mike Bird are deliberately inflaming the discussions
and I'll avoid responding to them in the future and I advise anyone to do
the same)

BTW, your git source package code is in the sourcev3 branch and I plan to
merge that branch before lenny if I don't get distracted too much by all
this story.
