I'm sorry, but this is an inappropriate time for you to revisit
the discussion of Roy's recent changes.  They were discussed over
a period of many months, with full knowledge that the subject had
been discussed years ago with regard to ncurses, and Roy went out
of his way to make every change anyone requested to improve the
functionality, performance, and usability of his terminfo changes.

If you think you've got any serious chance of persuading Roy, or,
I suspect, core, to back out his entire work now, I believe you
are very wrong -- particularly since you seem to have ignored the
entire recent discussion and are now essentially demanding that
everyone involved in it simply defer to your opinion.

I do not think that's going to happen.
