(Note to non-native English speakers, and native speakers for that
matter: I'm using "you" in the second person plural here.  I am not
addressing Przemek, or anyone else, specifically.)

Be very very careful with that last bit.  Voicing your opinion is a
right you have.  But it's not the case that the project is always better
off if you do so.  There are poisonous ideas, and poisonous behaviours,
and yours might be one of them.
