Thank you so much for this mail. I would have been very disappointed
if this discussion had continued wasting everyone's time, bandwidth
and inbox space. From where I'm sitting, Ciaran's tirades have been a
complete waste from every angle. I know I represent the feelings of
the entire Gentoo community when I say this.
I hope he takes a hint from this email, but somehow I know he won't.
