I agree, in a perfect and ideal world that is what should happen.
Unfortunatly for all of us, we don't live in it.

I have no issue with a position that says "we won't change it to work
with a broken client", nor with a position that says "we will change
it to compensate for Outlooks defects".

I just think its sad that Mailman may be tossed because of a hardline
position, thats all.

At any rate, I get to much email from my lists. Lets kill this off as
Off Topic.
