Look, the problem here is, it was inconceivable to everyone involved
that this little thing will get someone's panty in a wad. It's utter
non-problem, despite all the pages and pages and pages of rhethoric
about some manuals or whatnot. It's madness. Attempting to communicate
any such insignificant matter regularly, clearly, and precisely is
a recipy for people's eyes glazing over. I don't even read meeting
minutes these days. If things like X on tty1 start to appear in
regular communications, I'll have to filter out more.
