Your attitude is completely puzzling to me. I made a concrete,
constructive proposal to RMS to try to move things in the direction
that you seem to want too. Instead of waiting for his reply (as I
politely asked) and try to have a constructive discussion after that,
you chose to be destructive and nitpick my proposal.

Sorry, but I think that a discussion along the lines you started is
not going to get anywhere, so I'll stop here.

Deeply disappointed,
