That's a fair point :)  I have to be honest with you, I don't remember 
the extensions you refer to.  I have no doubt it was exactly as you say 
though :)

I was *going* to say that the difference is that when the project 
started it was me and me alone, and that isn't the case any more.  There 
are two other committers, and we have project bylaws that effectively 
gives them the ability to do things even if I 100% disagree.  I started 
out with complete control, and right now I essentially have none, and I 
must follow the will of the leadership.  Ultimately, we are accountable 
to the community insofar as if we do a bad job, there will be *no* 
community :)

Like I said, I was *going* to say that, but it doesn't really change 
your point... all three of us could still reject your extensions :)  You 
would have to convince the community to convince us we are wrong.  So 
yes, your 100% right, it's no different.

Yes :)  Your completely right, I have nothing to say :)
