Subject Re: Binary compatibility fixed + Kotlin DSL

It was of course not directed against Cédric, I was just making a point 
for what I consider the best interests of Groovy.
I have already replied to Thibault Kruse that it is evident Cédric has 
been pondering this move for years. I don't envy the position he 
evidently has been in for the last years, so I can understand, and it 
might actually be the best move for him.
But people always need a scapegoat for anything that happens they do not 
like, so anyone wanting to blame this on me, feel free to do so...
