Out of line? Point of order: please advise me as to when I may and
may not call a vote. I'm most interested in the what we call the new
implementation, and so I made a proposal with the names I like the best.

I don't understand this issue, please elaborate.

The chaos that is in STATUS does not at all in my mind break down
the issues into bite-sized chunks. An alternative to voting on one
thing at a time is to have everyone come up with their own *huge*
proposal, with justification, and then to vote on them individually.
If someone else has a better way to work through this, please speak
