Actually, when the keyboard detection problem was the
hottest thing bugging us stuff was being posted to
both lists; but Jung-uk Kim was the first guy (and
continues to be the guy) to write patches for that
chipset and he suggested we keep all the discussion in
the amd64 list. As far as I was concerned, I was going
to make sure the road to a solution was made minimally
bumpy and I figured Kim was the guy to call that shot.

exciting surprises around every corner (241).
