The original point of the thread was to bring to question whether the
cplus kernel was eating valuable developer time and from the
informative responses I got from Tim, Akemi and Johnny I was assured
it wasn't and that it is used to provide access to valuable kernel
patches that are slow to be incorporated upstream.

It was not a critique, but an explorative narrative, the outcome of
which was: valuable resource.
