Yes, I also know how Chuck seems to feel and really accept his point of view,
although I always though that the +0 is more fair as a vetoing -1 here. But
nevertheless I think the code freeze is not over, or is it? I think we should
not commit new stuff now blindly just because we voted +1 for APACI. That we
make an exception shouldn't mean that we go and no longer are pessimistic
about such stuff. So, please don't understand me wrong here: I'm not against
any guidelines. I think they are essential. I just think sometimes the
weighting on advantages and disadvantages should have more priority than
strictly following guidelines. But that should be not the general case.
