Brian said "if this is a problem, then.... well, then we have a problem", and 
I really worry about such sentences in such long discussions, since I have 
seen good developers leaving open source projects because of such "trivial 
personal difficulties" (compare to real life problems), for example Theo 
Deraadt and NetBSD.
