I read the entire thread yesterday, and there's lots of sensible
discussion. Authors simply do not have to respond to every concern,
especially when the concerns themselves are in flux.
What I would ask everyone to keep in mind is that *we are not aiming for
perfection*. The goal is to have a useful library set, that improves on
the current situation. Discussion should be framed with this in mind.
