Me too.  The question raised by the original proposal here seems to be
more one of whether we want to make a public policy statement about an
issue already decided by delegates.  After reading Manoj's messages, I
think it's clear that, if people want to vote on whether to override the
delegate decision, we should do that *first*.  Then, once that's settled,
we can look at what public position statements may or may not be
