I completely agree.

It's much easier to burn the barn down than to rebuild it, and we have a 
lot of arsonists in linuxtv.

People need to get over previous flame wars and get back to doing the 
one thing that brought them into the linuxtv community in the first 
place, community development.

Anything else is a waste of everyones time and only demonstrates to the 
rest of the world how fragmented many of the linuxtv devs really are.

Everyone should draw their mental line under their own personal hangups 
and move on.
