A useful exposition of wow the sausage is made. This a perfect example
of why expanding the committee's scope to design of complex libraries is
not a great idea. It doesn't scale. Adding mroe committees, adding
more members, etc. will only make the problem worse. The only hope is
to carefully limit scope of the committee to what it is actually good at.
It's not the language, it's not the committee, it's not the people on
the committee. It's that they have chosen to expend their efforts on
the wrong thing.
