@Myles: then you admit that it is being forced on everyone since now
those who like to have the old behavior have to do something to get
the old behavior back, no?

@OwN-3m-All: as Chris Lilley wrote in the other e-mail, it is best to
present a technical argument for the merit of the old behavior since
otherwise your argument is just due to kind of culture shock that
everyone will get accustomed to after sometime.
