It is a huge deal in as much as we don't use any sort of formal voting
process here and for better or worse, rely on consensus. If there is
anyone who has countering views and we don't as a group come up with
some formal statement about how things should be done, then it makes
it very hard for the likes of Robert and myself who need to implement
the thing. So, we need to deal with the different views people have
and balance them up and make a decision. Until I feel there is some
sort of official decision one way or another, I can't release any
