no one here said you had to change your PM. i could care less about your PM.
feel free to keep that crap in your PM forever ... it is after all your own
fault. nothing you said here is relevant to PMS in any way.
it's actually kind of sad how you can sit there and block any PMS additions
that have been used in the tree for years because you didnt feel like
implementing it in your PM, yet crap that was explicitly never official or in
used in the tree you feel you have a right to keep in the PMS. it doesnt
belong there, it never has, so delete it/branch it already.
