Not taking technical sides in this thread simply because I have no time to
argue it at length, BUT:

    Simply because a topic has been discussed to *death* does not mean the
    correct answer was obtained, only that a majority agree it is what they
    want. And while consensus may be enough to be considered 'right' in social
    situations(politics, etc.), the second the discussion becomes technical the
    opinion of the masses becomes irrelevant. All that then matters is getting
    the technical part objectively right, which IS possible, despite what some
    may say.

Regards,
Thomas
