You know the really great thing about open source?  If you are really, really
convinced that the code in question is broken, YOU CAN GO AND FIX IT.

Ahem.  Excuse the yelling.

So far, the only _code_ I've seen has come from Poul-Henning.  If you think
that it needs improvement, go improve it.  If you just want to rant about how
broken it is, well, that's up to you, but it doesn't belong on -hackers or
any of the other tech mailing lists.

You go off and use CGD or some other package, perhaps of your own design.
The rest of us will get along without you somehow.

This whole anti-PHK/anti-GBDE thing smells strongly of NIH syndrome and
personal animosity.
