Just so everyone knows, the original post below was caught by the new
first-message moderation procedure, but an administrative SNAFU let it
through later, but I'm sure we'll work out the kinks soon enough. The OP has
already posted a more moderate question on the topic.

Thanks go to Bill for trying to keep the level of the discussion to our
usual high standards.

Regards to all from OOPSLA,
