I see (a) some conflict exploding soon because this is being discussed
in an inappropriate forum (no criticism, I appreciate the need); (b) the
need for this particular problem to be addressed at a less emotional
level (I think Greg is being extremely level-headed, and so has been
everyone else to a lesser or greater extent) while perhaps allowing for
greater emotional expression - we're human, some of us :-)

(c) This is not an issue that can be resolved by logic alone and (d) such
issues (I like to call them religious) have a natural affinity for schisms
and NetBSD will suffer greatly if such a schism were to occur in the near

(e) I, for one, have a few issues of a religious nature I would like to
present for discussion in a forum where it is understood a priory that
particularly heretic issues are meant to be raised, so that they are
taken in the right spirit.

So, all this really just to suggest that we set up an additional mailing
list for heretical thinking.  Pretty please?  And can we continue to
discuss Greg's copyright notice there?
