Short question (i don't want to make this thread much longer):

Bill, if Havoc had send an eMail with "Maintainer decision: switch zvt->vte" as
subject to the d-d-l, would have been enought for you?

In this way we all would see a non buried mail that just states the decision.
This could be something very good. But only if people respect such a
decision ;-) We can't expect the maintainers to repeat themselves over and over
