This is the fundamental difference between the two of us I think.  I'm
asking the questions[1] and trying to find the answers.  You seem to think
we don't need to ask the questions.  That's why "does X cause Y" is a good
question while "Isn't it great how?" isn't.

This particular question has already been answered, I've not yet put it on
the wiki yet.  The notes from our last meeting yesterday hasn't gone to
the list, I'll update the wiki today though.


[1]  I'm asking these questions because I'm not happy with the state of
our operating system.  It's almost the entire reason I ran for the board.
