Agreed. I may be a newbie on *this* list, but not to lists in general.
Keith, I wholly respect all the work you've done as it *is* a good thing
and certainly a large step in the right direction, as all the numbers
clearly prove.(I say that because I'm certain that anyone else doing the
same testing would find the same things..so have at it!)

But impatience is seldom rewarded the way we'd often like. Something I
myself must remember, often!

Linus didn't lie, remember that, he even stated his position, as listed
below. Patience is key, but so is proper communication of intent. (see
below)

To play devil's advocate for just a minute: It would seem that
impatience is a two way street. Linus has decided how it should work,
and as we all know, this is a similar situation to CML2(ESR).

The thing which remains constant however is a lack of communication
around timing. Without that information, from either party in this
discussion:Keith and Linus for all intents, then it often will be ill
rewarded for both parties.

This is how flame wars seem to escalate rapidly and nearly every time,
about something which multiple parties believe is important.

Let us take a step back, or completely off-line this discussion for a
day or two, and then have at it again, if the list permits.

We should know that kbuild 2.5 is looked at by Linus and Kai. Let us not
*trash* another great make system. Let us take time and understanding,
but without the clear and crisp communication of intentions, timing
included, then it usually makes things *far* more frustrating than they
should've been.
