          == Getting some clarity into a clouded issue... ==

The amount of debate I've seen about the fog factor by far outweighs the 
amount of debate about other stuff that's probably more important. It 
seems to be a controversial issue (or it could be a bikeshed argument, 
but I don't believe it is).

As to Nick's argument, I'll assert that we don't know what exactly it is 
that FOG measures. Which would be required before improving things.

We can't even measure whether FOG is "causing more harm than good". But 
we can measure that it is controversial (because there's lots of talk 
about it).

I think it's best if gump is not too controversial, so I agree with 
Stefano that we should disable fog factoring (or publishing of it at 
least) for now.
