This is my thinking. I think what Aryeh is doing here is fine. But
perhaps Aryeh and David need to stop rising to the bait when someone
tells them they are wrong. I understand them replying up until now,
because I can see that silence might be interpreted as their
acquiescence. But I think to reply to naysayers now will only add much
more noise. Both sides have made their points loud and clear, and the
points don't need repetition.
Remko: this thread has generated interesting discussions, clearly
relevant to ports. If you don't like the discussions, simply press the
delete key or don't reply.
