Linus has been "wrong" before. It will require good code and numbers
backing that codes "goodness" before Linus will begin to listen. Yes,
a new procfs format will break a great deal of userland toys, so the
changes had better be worth it and sufficient to never, EVER require
a complete overhaul in the future.

I think Alan is already ignoring the entire discussion.
