SubjectRe: Possible breakthrough in the CML2 logjam?

Jeff, I'm not asking "other people". I'm asking *you*.

You're one of the people Linus says he trusts. Linus has said,
explicitly, to myself and Dave Jones, on this very issue, "get me out
of the loop". My take is that if you switch from opposing CML2 to
supporting it, the political wars will probably be about over.

I hope the prospect of actually getting to a metadata-centered
configuration system in our lifetime will be sufficient incentive for
you to do so. Oh lovely dream...I could have a prototype
metadata-to-CML2-bus-guards translator in less than two weeks, I
think, if I didn't have to maintain the CML2 rulebase all by myself. I
want to go there.

OK. Is "global dependencies" your sole technical showstopper? If so,
can we dispose of the ill-defined "CML2 will fuck up my workflow" thing?

If you tell me yes, we can move to a discussion of why global
dependencies are a problem and how to solve it.
