I appreciate you're frustrated with the current situation Antony, but I think
it's unfair for you to be claiming any kind of consensus without a vote. I would
be interested in seeing a patch, explanation, and vote. I've already expressed
my agreement with many of the points you've raised, and I'm not the only one.

It's pretty pointless for us to keep sending emails over proposed changes to the
code without actually seeing the changes. So, in the tradition of the Linux
kernel, show the code and let's have a vote!

Noah Slater,
