Hi Sam,

That is the case. I agree that a line-item vote would be premature at 
this time. The issue is not blocking technical progress, and there are 
many other issues to discuss. Most of the recent traffic on the list 
seems to concern pressing for a vote and voting mechanics, which seems 
like a waste of time.
