What the developers want, at least me, is not spend the next two weeks
being bitched at because philosophy forbids us to change a file

In fact, it is not disappearing. I'll just listen to what you said, then
ignore it and get it my way. I beat you with your own logic, how nice is

Anyway, I will go with whatever the rest says. If it's really necessary
to be narrow-minded about our own philosophy, then I won't stand in
anyone's way. You see, my own computer still works - as always.
