A reply like this is so disappointing.

So why is code which looks right to me not commited?? I can tell you the
answer, "I don't have commit access".

This is what I think is freightening. Someone like you thinks it is the
absolute right answer and therefore it must be done that way.
I will see it this way, you are having commit access and I don't.
This is regardless which is the right answer to some problem.

Oh, and please do me a favour. Stop argueing about this.
It comes to the point where it is not productive, but 
unfortenate it needs to be said that there is indeed an
