Whoa. Not sure what happened here, but whatever it is, if it results in
Eric feeling he should pack up, then it's definitely wrong.

Unit tests would be a good thing. And we don't have them. But Eric
isn't hurting anything by occasionally pointing it out, especially when
he includes data showing how current bugs are similar to past bugs that
would have been caught by unit tests. Sure, maybe that's only 0.001%
constructive compared to the much larger task of actually *writing* unit
tests -- but it's also only an email, and not hurting anyone. People
can blow off steam occasionally!

But, Greg's response was certainly not flamage, either...

What Julian said, x2.

-K, who hasn't even had time to write new bugs lately, let alone write
    tests to find them :-(.
