This argument is kind of pointless.  You can insult us by saying what 
we're doing isn't "real" design, or you can talk about what they do 
where you work, but the fact is that we do have some consensus around 
doing things a certain way here (iteratively).

Regardless of fashion, we do things a certain way when we work on 
Twisted; we'll continue to do something that way unless a major 
contributor has some serious suggestions about how things might be done 
better.  You're not going to become a major contributor and get that 
kind of influence just by complaining; since, by the fact that you're 
around and talking about Twisted here, *something* we did with our 
iterative process worked out right :).
