The problem here is that we lost those discussions in the mailing list 
flood. I think probably _most_ of this annoyance would be mitigate if 
those changes would happen on a split branch and then merged on a pull 
request on the mailing list. Same goes for the issue you had with Mans 
commits colliding with your uncommitted work. We have better tools, 
using them _should_ reduce this kind of friction.

Beside that I'd like to have the situation composed since now we have 
most people unhappy over a misunderstanding.
