I am not making a claim.  And what is this, a trial, that you ask me to
present evidence?  You were not a core team member at the time, so I
really can't blame you that you don't remember it.  But I blame you for
making this up as if it was "sweeping kernel change" or so.  It's a tiny
device driver that uses source code that is already in the tree since
about three years.  I will eventually dig out the email exchange, but
that will have to wait, I am at a trade show right now.

Me and others are giving answers.  It just seem so that it is not the
answers some people want to hear.  What Lua is good for as been
discussed many times, there are presentation slides around etc.
