Eh... sounds like politickin'... let's not go there, please.

The Subversion committers have consistently demonstrated a keen ability (and
desire) to work out our differences quickly and without even resorting to
something as formal as a vote. I mean, I can count on one hand the number
of such votes ... maybe on one finger, even! I'm not even quite sure that a
call for vote in this situation was really necessary, as we already have a
mechanism in place for addressing the technical question before us (the
1.7.x/STATUS voting system). To the degree that we can avoid resorting to
mere rule-by-the-majority and continue working toward peaceful consensus,
the greater Subversion community benefits.
