I would imagine that making the decision as part of the SC would be
equivalent to "deciding we want to do it". 
[Not that anyone was expecting the reaction that it got, but we knew
what it was going to do regarding the documentation!=software issue.]
I now know how retro SCOs OSes are. Riotous, riotous stuff. How they
had the ya-yas to declare Linux an infant OS in need of their IP is
