Huh?  "The amount of rumbling"?  You must be reading different dev lists
than I do, because I rarely see it even mentioned; the git list has a
higher number than usual, I'd wager, but otoh, the people there tend to
be much more fussy (aka pedantic) than usual about lots of things.

There are clearly some people that really, really, care about it, and
they are indeed quite vocal -- but AFAICT, most people just don't care.


Education, n. That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish
their lack of understanding.
