      Multiple people have expressed interest.  On Sept. 24th, Martin
 asked you to explain the changes.  On Sept. 25th and Oct. 12th you
 said you would do this.  On Oct. 20th you talked about why you
 wanted the change and posted a snippet from the FreeBSD manpage.
 I think everybody is in agreement about it being needed by a number
 of major packages.
      I'm guessing that English isn't your first language, so there
 may be a misunderstanding.  What was being requested is an explanation
 of the code.  In a previous message, I had asked about the f_touch
 part.  In particular, what we are wanting to know, is if this can
 be implemented without having to modify so many parts of the code?
 The flip side is that maybe we should just update our code to look
 like FreeBSD's as much as possible.

      I do not believe there is any such agreement (I certainly am
 not in agreement).  Also, to this point, only person has publically
 commented that they don't like the idea of this change.
