It sounded very much like you were saying that involving allocators would
make the tool inappropriate to its mission, as you define it.

Your tone was inappropriate. You communicated a lot more than just the
simple message above.

I would never object to that suggestion. If that suggestion was even there,
it was buried under inflammatory rhetoric.

If you call forth the muscle you have to be prepared for it to flex in
unexpected ways...
