I'm sorry if you find the reporting "biased." It is true that I feel a writer's position should be clear, rather than hidden behind some sort of bogus show of neutrality. And my position, formed by years of digging through and messing with kernel code, is that trying to cast the internal ABI in cement would slow and destabilize the whole process.
BUT when I report that a stable internal ABI is "just not in the plans," I am being flat-out factual. It is not in the plans, and there is no serious discussion about changing that. How could I have expressed that better?
