Re: [PATCH] Adding mtime_specs.txt to the notes/ folder

I've been giving this 'patch' some thought and am wondering if it
was necessary.

I think the original intention of the functional specification post
was to become a RFC. Would saving the functional spec to a
text file and placing it in 'notes/' directory defeat its purpose as a
RFC text since users might want to give their $0.02 without
needing to checkout some text file?

What's (for lack of a better word) 'bothering' me about this is
the fact that there are a lot of comments as given in the link
and then there are the archives which needs sifting through.
So a RFC isn't necessary.

As I went through part of the linked text, I noticed that a lot
of the discussions (including the patches as submitted by P.Marek)
were inconclusive. I don't know, but I feel that the submitted patches
might prove to be 'unpatchable' given the fact that it was done against
the 1.1.1-era trunk.

Perhaps a RFC is necessary right now, if not for comments but
  to conclude what has been discussed in the past and give those
discussions some closure so that implementation of some sort can
start(RFC now being "request for conclusions"). Then again, perhaps
there are new 'ideas' to sort through.
