Of course, most people don't like me when I'm /not/ angry either! :)

Thanks for being the Bad Cop on this Neal.  Please folks, please help  
make these buildbots go green!  I think we should all be disappointed  
if the releases have to slip because our stable buildbots are red.   
Neal and I will have free rein to back out changes if that turns them  
green so if your code changes cause a failure, and you want your  
changes to stay in, please spend some time fixing them.
