This is a new feature.  We don't want it to go out the door as a
misfeature or feeling that it is a security risk.  I agree that we are
spending too much time on discussing this.  Part of the reason is that
the decision rests with Richard in the end.  It appears to me that his
assessment differs from that of most others including myself.  The
typical timelag of 1 or 2 days for his participation makes it a
drawnout process to get to an agreement with him, and in the meantime
we spend our time infighting and venting frustration.

It is not productive, but there remains little other to do at the
moment, I guess.  AFAICT, slow as this discussion is, it is not
actually holding off the release since Richard is still busy clearing
copyright matters.
