Just to be clear, I don't expect anybody to be lulled.  I'm working on a
longer writeup, which I hope to post soon, and I will welcome all (calm
and rational) comments and questions in response.

(In retrospect perhaps we should've started work on the new prototype in
 a private repository -- but then, no doubt, someone would later accuse
 us of working behind closed doors in a different way.  Sigh.)
