    That surely happens in 0.01% of the cases.  My example
    referred to the fact that decisions by anyone on this list
    are completely meaningless, unless the person can convert
    that decision into actual code.

    PHP has hardly evolved over the last six months.  php-dev has
    become another dragging, slow committee where no actual
    evolution can happen.  The sorry state of PHP development
    stems from that.

    Sometimes I envy the Linux kernel model where a dictator can
    actually move the development process forward and does not
    need to seek consensus with those individuals who managed to
    subscribe to some mailing list.
