Because the reality is that decisions are made on IRC, implicitly.  It's
hard to engage in an argument that already happened, especially when the
discussion was very conversational rather than formal :

A: what do you think?
B: Well, like you said before...
A : about the contstructor
B : no, the other thing
A : related to using =?
B : right that it..  it would be better if that was done as Jim
suggested....

versus the more formal statements people make in email

"I'm beginning to agree that ensuring that re-serializing the Properties
preserves the original delimiter ("=" in Jim's example) that was used in
the original file."
