   As for status, yes...some more complicated things are accepted.  Even
   some of the small changes that were in-vote were still being
   discussed (SO_LINGER), while large ones (like the CERT) are
   clearly needed hence accepted.  (Accepted means, yes we will
   do this)

I'm not sure I understand --- the CERT patch is not large (one line);
further, it has been one of the more controversial ones --- I've
certainly seen more objections to it than I've seen to SO_LINGER.

As for SO_LINGER, there is no reason at all for this to be
controversial --- setting SO_LINGER causes *serious* problems on at
least SunOS and HP-UX, and probably other systems as well; also, the
CERN server and apparently NetSite both get along perfectly fine
without it.

   It's all a function of complexity and priority.

Please elaborate.
