Are you willing to compromise?

What is there for me to compromise about? I pointed out a potential
*technical* problem with your proposal and you jumped all over me and
suggested that my phone number be put in the release notes. Do you have
any response to my *technical* concern? If there are issues with
multibyte support in sarge it would be necessary to weigh the chance of
breaking things (remember, setting the locale to UTF-8 affects a *lot*
more than quotation marks) against the aesthetics of quote
transliteration. If the german translation team decides that the quotes
are more important than the potential breakage, so be it. Personally I
think that's an incredible overreaction, but I'm not using a german
locale and have no particular stake in what recommendation is made.
