all of these are, quite possibly, valid arguments. with that said, i'd like 
to suggest that we might benefit from positive discussion best going 
forward. personally, i think there have been a few too many 
$some-twisted-thing sucks posts here recently (i may have contributed one, i 
think, due to a momentary lapse in judgement). while such discussions, if 
they remain constructive, certainly have their place, if the overall balance 
of positivity on a dev list is not maintained, things usually go downhill 
fast in my experience. folks doing open source work need to keep themselves 
motivated to work on their projects after a hard day on the job, for 
example, and the overall tone might matter to some of them in that respect.

i do not presume to tell anyone what to do, mind you, just a suggestion from 
my end.
