As I said before, I am involved in patches only when a patch isn't
addressed. If a new system works, I will have nothing to do, which is
If you want me to believe it will work better than what we do now, I
can't. Prove me wrong. Forget about what I think. Do something and
stop talking about it.
What I am not going to do is to do 2x more work and get 2% more help,
which is what I fear.
