Hmm, I'll grant you Tom Stephens, Phil Hallam-Baker and Baber Amin.  I
think David Kemp and Dave Wagner were on the fence more than they were
for either side.  I'd also add Paul Kocher and Peter Williams on the
against side.

In any case, when people are split approximately equally, I'd say that
doesn't constitute a rough consensus.
