SubjectRe: [kbuild-devel] Converting the 2.5 kernel to kbuild 2.5

You can spend all week telling us how easy it would be to implement
all the CML2 benefits that CML1 doesn't have, if you like -- but one
of the rules of this game is that an ounce of working code beats a
pound of handwaving.

When you've shown the list the bundle of CML1 implementation and
rulesfile patches that brings CML1 up to snuff, *then* you'll have
grounds to argue that the switch to CML2 gains nothing.

So don't talk about it, *do it*! Whether you succeed or fail, one of
the two of us will get a valuable education from your attempt. And
until you succeed or fail, arguing is just wasting everyone else's time.
