I think we have to agree to disagree, since I am clearly a pessimist and you
appear to be an optimist. "Better the devil you know than the devil you don't"
(ancient Chinese proverb).

I'd also like to point out [again] that a longstanding Subversion policy has
been to enumerate Neon versions (which Sussman has already gone on record with
disliking). Change it if you like, but at least have the strength to admit that
it is a change from a policy which has worked so far pretty well.
