I'm certainly less than comfortable with this. Tridge may have read too
much into your comment, but it's a feeling that has been going around.
Perhaps as a team, we need to squash some false impressions?

I thought we had that dealt with? When did we go from 'we are
comfortable with this' to 'not comfortable'? Or was this a case of
'nobody who actually counted was ever comfortable with this'?

I'm not expecting this release to change, but I do wonder how that will
