I appreciate the compliment but in my own opinion I have not lived up to
my own expectations as SPI Treasurer.  Anthony Towns can offer you quite
a long list of my failings in that department should you care to ask him
(and perhaps even if you don't).

While I would object to any assertion that I'm a worse SPI Treasurer
than Darren Benham, that's hardly a tough standard to beat.  He set the
bar so low only an earthworm could limbo under it.  :-P

Again, I appreciate the compliments.  I have been known to change my
mind from time to time.  Joey Hess has on at least one occassion kept
me from doing something fairly stupid with XFree86, and, again, Anthony
Towns knows of an instance where I changed my mind and ended up agreeing
with him.  He also wanted me to apologize for having ever felt
differently, I think, but, well, you can't win 'em all.  :)
