Oh nice!

I managed a to spark a new empty discussion, which repeats the old 
arguments, but produces no code. And now there's a challenge
to start a new round of naked FUD wrestling. This was quite the
opposite of what I tried to do. Sorry.

Bugs happen. They get fixed. Life goes on. If you don't grok that,
you should disqualify yourself from doing anything with technology.

I am disappointed in myself for believing that anything good would
come from discussing anything controversial on debian-devel. Luckily,
this new realisation has sobered me so thoroghly that if I get drunk
on Irish whiskey tonight, I won't have a hungover tomorrow.

All my predictions will turn out to be false
