I agree[1]. 

To Emmet: I think it's interesting that this thread started when you
retracted your +1 on Dustin's application referencing that "it would set
a new precedent". Well, by doing so, you've helped establish a
different, new precedent, namely that if you're a server team person,
you get to be dragged through the mud for weeks for no apparant, good
reason, and you don't get to play until you're core-dev.

[1]: Yes, you heard it here first. ScottK and I agree.
