I trust you, Nicolas.

An important aspect of free software that people tend to forget is
that whoever does the job gets to choose the tools, and as long as the
end result is good (and in this case it is more than that), that's
their prerogative.  Letting someone do important job, let alone
service to the community, and then criticizing them for the tools
they've chosen, is at least unfair.

Nicolas volunteered for the job when no one else would.  Let's be
grateful, and let's see the 99% full part of the glass.  If we don't
support our volunteers, we have no future.
