Hmmm, not sure if this is worded ... really fair !?

Oh, ok. 
I interpreted your position on this a bit more passive I guess
as in "I won't support but won't block either".

As it stands I would have needed 2 supporters anyway,
with or without your NAK, therefore I was a bit surprised by 
you emphasizing it.

The chances were small to get it in.
But now, I'm afraid, they're pretty much zero.

Anyhow, as we both stated already, not important enough to bikeshed.

Thanks Jeremy.

Cheers Swen
