You told a whole lot of people that you thought their baby was ugly,
what did you expect?

Overall, I'd say the reaction to you're original e-mail was pretty mild.

Best way to help is to help with the current well understood
requirements.  There's a lot of refactoring going on in the core at
the moment.  I wouldn't be surprised if you find that you can move
your ideas forward if you're willing to contribute to the project as
it currently is heading and not try and turn things around with one
big sweeping massive change.
