I don't entirely disagree with this actually; I'd rather n-m behaved
somewhat differently to how Wichert describes it. But I'd already gone
over that in -private and I wasn't really concerned enough to go over
it again in -project. No one else seemed to either, actually, and the
public thread in -project didn't really come to anything.

Restate your objections in public? (Forward the appropriate mails from
-private to -project?)

Become a member of n-m and subvert it from within? (Under the `those
what do the work make the rules' theory)

I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred.
