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.
