Opinions have validity when there's reasoning behind them. An opinion
that takes in account only one vector when defining "best" does not
stand ground on the longer term.

If one reads my email attentively, instead of just shutting both eyes to

should be used with caution (as I expressed, the source that generated
the binary that makes (de/en)coding must be preserved until the format
is fully defined and then properly encoded).
