Yeah, my fault. I have a lot of other patches pending, too, but
just didn't get around. I'll try to catch up now.

OK. I'll try to get it done soonish.

Well, you know my position. If you send me what I asked for
it would be in CVS immediately. Now, I tried to get Michael
and Andrew to back up either your or my position so we
could reach a decision, but it seems they are not willing
to say something.

Just in case you forgot: My problem is not that your code
sucks, but simply that it is different from all other frontend
drivers. I see maintainability issues, but also social
problems with the people who were involved in the discussions
that led to the current frontend design.

An easy way out: You could get a CVS account and commit it
yourself. That way you would take direct responsibility for
your deeds.

Johannes
