It's good to have a decision here, but I'm kind of worried about the four
abstains -- it's easy for me to leap to a conclusion that the individuals
in question just didn't want to to spend the time to come to a considered
position, even though this issue has substantial potential impact for our
userbase.  I'm trying to not make faulty assumptions, so some greater
clarity on the circumstances would be helpful, if possible.
