I'd like to add that I doubt there is such a user.  However, since
members of core have replied to this thread, they are aware that it is
happening and can bring it to core@ to see if core@ feels it should
stop.  To make it clearer, I just forwarded stuff to core@ to see if
anybody has an objection there.  If so, we'll let you know.
