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.
