    What, exactly, is the point of making more than bug-fix-only changes to
    the IDE code today, when we have libata around which is a much better
    code base to work from? I'm afraid it still escapes me. I don't mean to
    denigrate the work that you and other people working on IDE are doing,
    but can't help but think there would be more productive outlets for it..
