We are doing what we are doing

We are not changing mid stream.

I don't care if you like it or not.

Millions of users have built scripts that depend on certain rules, like
our use of dist tags, to remain constant.

A couple of comments on a mailing list, because someone has a good idea,
does not mean that we need to change things that cause these people to
rewire their scripts.  It is just not going to happen mid stream.

Now, if you (or anyone else here) doesn't like it ... well, it is not
changing mid stream.

What we CAN discuss is the possibility that in the NEWER distributions,
we maybe do it differently (ie, C6).
