When you get a poll result like this on an issue like this ("should we
break a lot of your programs by taking away a piece of functionality
you're used to") I attach a great deal of significance to it.

But aside from that, what I was really asking for was the editors'
*opinions*.  So far, only Kent and Manuel have provided theirs.

That doesn't indicate people know the issue at all.
