I don't know how to read these comments... Are you afraid Guido wouldn't
accept the proposed arrangement, or are people really doubting that Guido
is still involved in this decision? I've seen the latter idea expressed by
non-core-developers, but to me, Guido's use of "try" (twice) and "we" in
his original email makes it clear that he's still involved; he just doesn't
want to (or can't) dictate what he'll be replaced by. If people feel like
Guido's participation in this is in doubt, should we just ask him to
confirm one way or the other? (You don't have to wait for an answer to that
question, Guido :)
