I did not think I would ever reply in this thread, but its 25+ messages in
my inbox made me click on the CoC link and actually read it.

As a result, I am truly puzzled.  The CoC just states "we're good to each
other" in not so many words.  The dispute over Brett not being good to
others by stating that we all are reminds me of the Russell's paradox. [1]

I suggest that we deal with the question "Does CoC apply to core
developers?" in the same manner the modern set theory deals with the Barber
problem.
