Not really ironic, but actually quite understandable and human. On
Ubuntu he messed the transition up by making 2.6 default too early,
and is now overcompensating and messing the transition up in Debian by
making it default way too late.

It is sad that he has no intention of considering any opinions except
his own which is clouded by the fear of making the same mistake twice.
