I doubt that anyone would dispute that.

No-one said that; certainly not I.  I suggested that the timing
could have been better.

Huh?  *You* said it, not I.

Um, David has already had to fix something, has he not?  You
admit that the Windows build would almost certainly be broken
by your change.  That it was not is excellent.  But any platforms
for which the build is broken will require someone to turn
away from whatever else it may be working on in order to
fix it.

As I said in the beginning, I question whether that should be
a goal for the first beta.

Even if it did not break the build, a change of this magnitude
should be reviewed.  Which takes time.  Which delays the beta.
I think it should have waited until we had beta 1 out.  That is all.
