That is a really surprising statement coming from you, Alex, as you and I
have discussed this very topic in person several times, and I have
explained to you why I initially checked in Scott's patches with mixed
syntax and we both had agreed that in the long run the code has to be
rewritted in AT&T syntax. So now you are using the fact that there is no
log on the mailing list about this discussion to hurt the project and
create some sort of artificial divide in the community once again.

I am really disappointed in you.
