I don't know if this post was meant specifically for me, but in any case 
I didn't write the sentence quoted above. Other people have already 
added material to my original wiki page, and I encourage you to do the 
same if you disagree with what's there right now.

To everyone who's posted in this thread: I think you're misunderstanding 
what I meant by the phrase "on the wiki". :-) My hope was/is that this 
whole debate /moves/ to the wiki exclusively. My impression is that the 
mailing-list debate has made no progress for some time (weeks) and 
almost all of the traffic now consists of weekly or daily repetitions of 
the same old points and counterpoints. This is a sign that the time has 
come to move to a discussion format that doesn't require reiteration.
