No. The pattern is: you rush to produce a bad fix.

I said that WE needed to look for a solution. We, collective.

I, individual, do not have a solution, I only know that one exists
(Perl, Windows, web browsers all have a similar mechanism) and that
"fixing" the individual issues rather than designing a global solution
is a waste of time.

This one ? Ignore it but take the opportunity to start designingⁿ: a
proper solution would fix it anyway.

If you do anything else, I will not object to you pushing, but only if
you add "--author=Sysiphus" to your git commit command.
