JFTR, I don't think that "a quick and easy poll" is always a
sufficient way to resolve issues. I think one of the strength of
Debian is that we try to analyze the situation before we do a
decision. Which has the advantage that we could usually uphold our
decisions because they are well thought. (And the disadvantage that
some people don't understand that speaking and thinking things over
needs time. Somehow thinking things over in a good way doesn't match
the way the media tell us how it shold be.)
