Indeed. Luke - this new code has to be *severly* examined
by someone other than you before we can possibly accept it.

This means security review, error return corrections (which
you admit you don't always do :-) and many other things. 

No way can we just take this code sight unseen.

You are changing too much. You have done this before. Be
careful. This new code might be wonderful. It might not.
Until other Team members have reviewed the changes it is
too dangerous to accept into stable. Way too dangerous :-).


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
