Development benefits are not "politics".

Easier distribution is not "politics".

More responsive upstream developers are not "politics".

You ignoring all of these points and more that have been brought up, some
by me, *is* evidently "politics" -- because you are seeking a political
capitulation to your willfully ignorant demands.  Politics *lose*, so
far, and for that I am grateful.

. . . but if it makes you feel better to whisper to yourself that all
opposition to your position (even when you ignore it and have not
bothered to actually read and understand it) is just "politics", go
ahead, as long as it doesn't perpetuate this wholly unnecessary griping
on the mailing list.
