The problem with the "waiting" is that we had lots of paper discussion,
but everyone else said "just implement it and get some real-world
results".  So I'm doing that.  Talking just to hear my own voice isn't
that interesting, frankly.

Oh, either you or I can "object".  Its just that such an objection might
not have much meaning. :-)

There was some discussion way back when.  But my post a couple of days
ago was the first time I proposed a concrete solution.  Its not just
com_arbus.c, btw, but really com_aubus.c that is most interesting.

Anyway, I've really tried to take criticisms constructively, but at this
point this *particular* criticism (the sc_iot BS), doesn't seem to be
fruitful, so I'm going to ignore it.

If you (or anyone else) comes up with a much better way to do this, then
you  (or whoever else) is more than free to either change what I've done
or ask core@ to reject my proposal with an alternate proposal.  I don't
really care either way.
