Well, clearly that's not Warren's *intent*.

But can't that be said for the entire idea of multilib? :)

Ins seriousness: this is hard to argue with, mostly because Christopher is
right, especially when it comes to respecting his work and area of
expertise. On the other hand, Warren also has a lot of valuable expertise in
making a collection of software that many people actually want to use and
are excited about, and that needs to be respected too.

I guess what I'm saying is: can't we all just get along?
