I think I can explain this.  You see, this issue has been discussed
before (with these exact packages as examples, in fact), and people
_have_ gotten aggressive about it.  You're getting the fallout from
earlier flamewars.  In fact, I think the original proposal for the
data section was the result of one such flamewar.

Oh, good.  I was afraid that one of my favourite words had been
hijacked by some political movement :)
