When suggested, it wasn't clear to me that it did break anything,
otherwise I wouldn't have written it up. I read Alvaro's post and
wondered why that proposal had been overlooked, so I started a separate
thread to ensure that the idea was discussed. That seems very similar to
many of your own posts.
In the morning light, holding a coffee, its obviously broken and it is
clear that I misunderstood what was being proposed.
Bottom line is I initiate lots of ideas, not all of which become
projects, but many become TODO items. Sometimes I see things others do
not, sometimes I make mistakes; sometimes it takes a while for my ideas
to be understood and accepted. I don't hold mistakes against anyone, and
we all make them.
