You should decide that for yourselves - I'm not going to be
missing out on that dialog anyway, I'm just trying to be nice
and do my part by requesting the freeze break so that people
who do want the dialog in a stable release - get it.

Anyway, this whole discussion was probably sparked (and then
blown out of proportion) simply because the feature was 
available in svn before the break was approved - I made it
clear that no such code would be released and if people 
got offended then I dont know what to tell them, I was 
in a hurry and I had to make the call before leaving town
for the week.

Yes I did that immediately, sorry for not following up.
