BTW. Is this always going to be like this ?

Every *single* architectural or design decision we make for our
architecture has to be justified 30 times over, every piece of code bike
shedded to oblivion for month, etc... ?

Do we always have to finally get to some kind of agreement on design, go
to the 6 month bike-shedding phase, just to have somebody else come up
and start re-questioning the whole original design (without any
understanding of our specific constraints of course) ?

You guys are the most horrendous community I have ever got to work with.
It's simply impossible to get anything done in any reasonable time
frame .

At this stage, it would have taken us an order of magnitude less time to
simply rewrite an entire hypervisor from scratch.

This is sad.

Ben.
