As one of those people who has been critical of parts of Peter's module, 
I'd like to publicly say that I *mostly* like it. Sometimes we focus 
too much on the negatives and don't remember to give credit where 
credit is due.

Hopefully we can reach consensus, or at least understanding, on the 
remaining issue(s).
