Oh, absolutely -- what I was asking was for you to write the patch
with the conservative default. That's the only thing that will go in
under your name.

After that, the list can continue to discuss the default; if it gets
changed, that act will be attributable to someone else, not you.

I hardly think anything in this thread can be called "bullying", by
any stretch of the imagination :-).
