FWIW, Steve, you're not the only one that finds the thread
distracting, annoying, and dare I say, counter-productive.

Informed debate is healthy... it's just that this particular debate
doesn't seem well informed (as much as I have and always will respect
Christopher's opinion/input) -- it comes across more as a "let's throw
the baby out with the bathwater and start from scratch" than an
attempt at a productive thread.

I'm dreading having to go through each item in the "Facing
Architectural Challenges in VC 2.0" point by point to demonstrate why
some, but not all, of the points are a bit misguided. That's not to
say there are some good points in there, but it's really frustrating
to have solutions proposed that might address one concern, but fail to
address the other concerns that VC 1.0, VC 1.1, and VC 2.0
(presumably) do.

This is normal... "something better" will always be proposed... the
question is, is it worth abandoning the work we've done over the past
8 years to go and chase the new bright and shiny?
