Yes, that is unclear.  Your first response suggested that the reasons
for this are deeper than a cutesy "that's the way it works" and "more
people wanted it than otherwise."  While I don't expect you to summarize
every possible position given in those discussions, it would have been
helpful for you to give the major reason(s) for the signature.  I can't
believe this is a simple matter of a vote with the majority winning
without any good reason(s) to justify their choice.

Whatever.  You don't want to answer the question, and so I'll do as you
suggest and join the development list.

No, I have no real desire to know the discussions on the development
list.  All I wanted was for the person who suggested there were deeper
reasons to provide them.  If I found those reasons interesting, I was
going to dig deeper.  Now I have to dig deeper just to get the answer
you know, but apparently don't want to provide.

I know what this list is for.  What started as a simple question that
could have been answered with a sentence or two from you turned into
several messages.  

Thanks for your help.
