Well, Guido gave the impression that he would go with the majority
verdict which I'm not sure I've seen him say before.  I'm sure he's
really reserved his right to ignore the outcome of the current c.l.py
shindig, but I think it could be a worrying precedent.  

IOW, I think Guido gets decisions right more often than *I* do, so I
certainly think he beats a newsgroup mob.

Cheers,
