Of course we were always discussing judgement calls, and these are
always going to be subjective, but I don't think that means that we
can't hope to come to a reasoned agreement.   I only wrote because I
felt that we were beginning to drift towards a formal committee-style
judgement in a situation where it has been pretty clear what the
majority view was, and that we have to be careful about that, because
it can reduce our feeling of shared ownership and responsibility - a
feeling that numpy has been remarkably good at maintaining.

See you,

Matthew
