It appears that the post where I originally proposed this idea is missing
from the Google Groups archive. Something must have gone wrong when I
imported the group archive into Google Groups, or data rot got to it. The
Mail-Archive.com archive is in even worse shape, missing everything from
before Sept 2006.
Fortunately a third archive at Nabble.com seems still complete, and the post
can be found here:
As Hal notes on his website, I've since moved away from this position. I've
explain my reasons on the mailing list as they occurred to me (for example
and http://www.nabble.com/forum/ViewPost.jtp?post=8496294&framed=y) but
perhaps I should write down a summary for the new members.
PS, if anyone wants to download the complete raw mailing list archive in
zipped Unix mailbox format, please email me privately.
