Subject Re: [DISCUSS] shrinkwrap
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2014 17:30:17 GMT
I'm w/ Mike on this. No idea why we started using shrinkwrap, its always
had a flaky rep, and if we don't remember why then I'm guessing we might
have decided to use it for reasons that may have been more defensive than
actually solving a problem we had. Lets turf it. If bugs get reported then
we can bring it back.
