Can we leave the sanity attacks out of it, please?  It's unhelpful to 
suggest that all the people with concerns about this experiment have 
personality problems.

Are the attacks on people because there are no good answers to the 
concerns of Martin Schulze and others?

Can Dunc-Tank advocates answer these essential questions?

Because it's more efficient than the alternatives for many tasks.

However, some developers won't make the ethical compromises necessary to 
do so.  What if money is one of your motivations, not only or primary?
