I'm disappointed that you think that. I respect yours, Jan's, etc. role
as maintainers, and your absolute right to reject anything you think
is inappropriate. It's clear that Jan, and now apparently you, don't
respect my abilities or desire to do good work.

I won't make the changes you suggest because I don't think they
represent good design, and I don't think they are the right way to
solve the issue at hand.

I'm going to hand the Intel end of further discussions off to Ravi
