How would I know about this so called discussion? What if I
might have things to add to it, after listening in for a bit? Who is
the target audience for suvh off list discussion? Only people who have
participated earlier? (I mean, I participated, and I have had no emails
sent to me. And I even contributed to the whole python policy thing --
one of the documents people were bandying about in an earlier
incarnation of this discussion was written by me).
The difference between us is not very far, cruising for burgers in
daddy's new car.
