Apparently you're saying that just because you can't/don't want to use a
more appropriate tool, other people shouldn't be able too.  That sounds
ridiculous to me.  Use an inferior tool if you want, but don't force
other people to.

Well, you're the one using an inferior e-mail client while better
options are available, IIUC.  Perhaps you are part of those CVS-liking
people? ;-)
