Feel free; it doesn't matter to me, and I don't much matter to the
decision, either.  Not to mention that you don't do the counting.

The people who will actually make a decision on this don't need it
spelled out, though, and your ideas would get better reception from
Those Whose Opinions Really Count if you would filter them through the
Zen before posting.
