Except that I do not accuse him of anything... For fsck sake, imagine somebody using words "leveraging synergies" in a posting and getting in reply "what the hell?" along with a reference to e.g. http://dilbert.com/strips/comic/2006-09-05/
His overall point might or might not be valid; I don't know if the reasons for rejection of LTT had been political or not and I don't know how much merits did the thing have - both back in '98 and today. IIRC, the threads around that topic became flame-laden very fast and frankly, the quality of flames had not been high enough to read them for amusement sake. In principle, "invasive" and "monolithic" are legitimate complaints, provided that they do actually apply to patches in question. OTOH, it's not like they had been hard to throw around anyway, whether they do apply or not. My _only_ point in this reply had been "why the hell are you using that kind of buzzwords?"
