Sorry, that was not the intention :(  What I said about -1s is a
completely generic belief I have formed after watching Avalon tear itself
apart.  If my little rant about -1s were posted to avalon-dev in response
to a PD/SC flamefest, I think you'd agree with it.

I think you'll find if you _express_ your opinions without _forcing_ them
via a -1, you'll get a much less defensive reaction.  I will personally
revert anything you want to -0.9 until I've understood your point.  For
example, if I'd forced through the original patch I'd have never
encountered that excellent bit of thinking about inverting sitemaps for
CLI optimizations.
