Please do not take everything you see here as the officially sanctioned
position of the Emacs maintainers, GNU, or the core team of developers
as a whole.  That will lead to some serious misunderstandings.

This is a public mailing list, where anyone can say whatever they like.
You don't even need to be subscribed.  Lynn is, I assume, subscribed to
the list and welcome to put forward his views along with everyone else
that follows the rules.  That's all.
