I don't care how good your reasons are, the fact of the matter is that it
was extensively discussed, a decision was made, and it is now a done deal.
Please remember that these are high-traffic lists that many people
subscribe to; complaining about the C for loop is a waste of everybody's
time. At the very least, please respect the process and put together a
proposal that we can all discuss, instead of asking Chris or whoever to
step in and make an exception because you don't like it.
