It has long been known that my opinions are objectively correct!

Hopefully people are still at least having fun.

Discussions about changes that touch close to core principles cut deep, 
so they get a bit heated, but this is a long tradition on mailing lists 
and Usenet before that.

I absolutely believe that Raimo and Richard are acting in good faith.
They both care about Erlang and have put a lot into it over the years.

I disagree with this change on principle and in the face of what I view 
as a more consistent alternative direction. I also disagree with how 
this discussion is being framed.

The framing, assumptions, and what appears to be somewhat opaque 
procedure is the rub, not the idea that someone came up with a proposal 
for how to patch over one of the few warts in the language.
