I'm the worst offender among us in the too-busy-to-cope
category. (Mainly, I've been trying hard to get cool new
multicore-friendly lightweight parallel framework targetted
for Java 7 in good enough shape for people to get some
experience with soon.). Sorry about that. I'll hopefully
be back to normal active EG mode within a few weeks.

But I agree with the spirit of Glyn's remarks to chill out.
I'm sure that Andreas didn't mean to sound autocratic about
forming proposal, and I'm sure that Bryan's ideas are worth
discussing, despite the fact we haven't yet.

I guess Andrea's responses are best decoded as
a request to give him some time to think through stuff, perhaps
incorporating some of Bryan's ideas, before going through
blow-by-blow comparison. Which for me would be fine.

A telecon in July sounds like a good idea. As much as I
agree about how nice it would be to all visit Glyn in England,
I don't think I can schedule it.
