Designing and implementing triggers was a lot more work, and a lot more
serious work, than merely merging a git branch. Once you start to learn
some programming you'll understand the difference.
I'm glad that Guillem finally found time out from reformatting code to
merge Ian's work. Guillem could have blocked triggers indefinitely but
to thank Guillem for ONLY delaying triggers by eight or ten months is hokum.
