Robin, has it ever occured to you that the majority might be *for*
that change?  But because we feel Guido *will* implement that change,
we don't see a need to speak up.

The most vocal group is not necessarily the majority (and much less
right).  There *is* such a thing as a silent majority...

I personally like that change.  And yes, I'll have to fix up some code
too, probably.  But it will be worth it.

Bye, J
