FWIW I have no particular problem with CML2. I agree that CML1 is fairly
limited, and can see the advantages in ditching it for a new language.

I do have objections to some of the other ideas which have been floated for
changing the behaviour of the config rules, which aren't strictly related to
the change in language.

I just want to make sure that the introduction of CML2 doesn't sneak in
controversial changes to the config behaviour to make my Aunt Tilley happy,
when those changes should be given individual consideration, not presented
as a fait accomplis.

If I can't have one without the other, I'd rather not have either - CML1
may indeed suck, but it doesn't suck _that_ much.

But I figure we can trust you not to do that - can't we?
