Understandable, congratulations on what I hope was a successful move,
thanks for responding today.

Yes; although Mads is neither a committer nor PMC member, there have been
several other votes from the peanut gallery for and against, some tepid
and some strong opinions.  I was trying to distill the list to binding
votes to reach a conclusion.

Thank you for clarifying.

Ask Jim?

Only one binding -1, yours still, and a majority (as you saw in the summary)
voting +1 for the patch.  Many of those individuals are active in triaging
issues.a.o, users@ etc, and I see their rational.  In fact, it refined my
objection to be nominally +0.5 for the 'Off' behavior, while strongly -1.0
for any 'Set' behavior that represents Apache httpd as anything other than
Apache httpd, which was also modified a couple weeks ago.

There were a few more days of activity you ignored back then, including
posts to you from Jeff and Jim.  Thanks for straighting us out :)
