Maybe for you, but not for me (and I guess for others as well).

Why don't talk? Give a link to the messages (because I can't remember 
those ones), let's discuss it.

I see your quote above and don't find the words.

Let me remember you when I had been insisted to connect GenericOpt to 
OpenOpt I said "GenericOpt should stay available as separate package", 
and I have obtained agree (and AFAIK it remains available as separate 
package). So please enough speculating on GenericOpt. You have 
GenericOpt page in scikits webserver, any time you can remove GenericOpt 
from OpenOpt svn and continue to develop and use it as a standalone 
package (I would gladly hear from you of this decision).

The situation is like I commit something to Linux Kernel and then I 
commit whatever I want to any Linux files saying "I'm Linux developer 
too, I had committed something so I will continue more and more, no 
matter what you think".
