You did, and I do want to be clear that you were heard and we took that
into account, and I really appreciate your willingness to support GnuTLS
to the extent that you can despite your reservations.  It was, for us, the
best of a set of bad options.  I hope that, in the long run, it will
improve, and I'll do what I can to push it in that direction.
