There have been lots of times when, faced with a gadfly, I've said "OK,
here's the job, now show me that you can do the work." A braver
organization would have done so. The committee as it presently exists is
over-lawyered, and I would have added some balance and a lot of skill.
If you look at the discussion list, it will be clear that they aren't
getting very much energy out of that group of extremely busy people.
Turning away an extremely-qualified volunteer who has already worked on
the problem isn't a good idea.

I think I've drawn attention to more than one problem.
