I found the discussion informative, in that it explains how certain design 
decisions move us forward while maintaining the edict you so succinctly 
state. The reasoning isn't always obvious to those of us who aren't deeply 
involved in the process, but such discussions tend to boost confidence in 
the OpenAFS project overall -- not insignificant considering some of us 
have bet the enterprise on OpenAFS. I appreciate the thoughtful 
contributions of the participants.
