Yes. Nothing is perfect. But that's also why we created the com@native-language list, and
why I constantly tried to braid discussions into some semblance of coherence. But there is
always loss, there is always entropy, and there is always its local reversal, which, when
compiled, can make things run quite nicely. 

I'm all for improvements. I'm also all for productive local engagement. Not everything need
be monolithic. But having a coherent message—which I tried simplifying and articulating
at the last (last?) OOoCon, is absolutely essential.
