Huh, I see you and Jason working *together* on the code.  I know  
you're not saying you don't want to work collaboratively with Jason  
and co, so maybe you can give some suggestions on how you both might  
collaborate better?

Just a comment about the whole "no justification" concept, that's  
kind of a tricky position to take.  On one hand discussion is good,  
on the other hand if you demand a justification for others code, it's  
an invite for others to start demanding the same of you.  That's  
pretty obvious and I'm probably not helping very much :)

I haven't said anything real useful, so why don't i just shut up and  
let you talk.  Taking this in a decidedly positive direction, what  
would you like to see more of out of you both?
