All right, I was perhaps too strong.  It sounded more
like an ultimatum than a veto, which really got up my nose.
I think the timing is rotten, too, though.

{Sigh}  I'm in too much of a rush right now to address this properly,
but I think that Roy's veto needs to be accompanied by an alternate
proposal at this point in order to be useful and not obstructive.
Maybe he included one, but I don't think I saw it if so.
