FTR, I'm *not* implyng Michael of doing this, but there is a difference
between a "discussion of ideas" and inflamatory and incorrect
accusations/assumptions. This thread has clearly "gone of the rails" a
bit from it's original intent, thus stirring up emotions and I suspect
poking wounds made from other unrelated changes in Ubuntu.  I've valued
Michael's input on this thread, and would certainly hope if he has any
more constructive input to do so.
