What are you attempting to insinuate?

I think BK had has positive benefits to all Linux kernel hackers,
whether or not they use BitKeeper. The current patch flow is pretty
amazing, and we seemed to have avoided the Linus burn-out that
threatened to come to pass pre-BK.

It's getting to the point where it seems like every time BitMover does
something to appease the non-BK crowd, people (a) read evil intentions
into the action, and/or (b) just keep asking for more.

Can someone please tell what is the overall point? what is the endgame
here? what is a concrete technical solution that will satisfy you
(Ben), Pavel, and everybody else?
