Thank you!

Yes, that's what I thought...

Hmm, not really. The reason for this is, I believe that agreement is very
important with respect to applying patches, closing bug reports and so on. And
I know that I'm very often uncertain whether agreement has been reached or not.
After all, that's why I wrote the summary to the bug report above.

In fact this very issue "0^0" is a wonderful example: Although I'm confident
that it is, it is not obvious, at least, not to me, whether our reasoning is
correct. Maybe time will tell -- in case it is not :-)

So the current setup works well for me: there are very few people with admin
access and I trust them not to take action before agreement has been reached.

On the other hand, I am happy to summarize discussions where I'm able to.
