Hey Jukka - I can see your point for sure -

but with more people voting than saying they are confused, that seems to 
say something ?

Since Yonik started the vote, I'd defer to him on all this - its only my 

But it seems that anyone could argue any vote is too monumental or 
confusing at any time. But if the majority of people
are not confused and are voting (most now voting for the merge), I'm not 
sure it makes sense to say the vote is premature?

If 90%+ of the committers are voting +1 so far, I'm not sure that says 
we should start with smaller steps either?

My simple opinion though.
