Sure, but let me ask you, do you like working with those people who  
are jerks all the time?  AFAICT, Lucene has done a pretty good job of  
creating something of quality AND doing it in a civil, respectful way,  
otherwise I just don't think we would still all be here.  Why can't we  
have both?  You talk like the only way it is possible to achieve  
something is by stepping on others.

I would suggest everyone involved remove feelings from all of this and  
just focus on discussing the pros and cons of the subject at hand  
without the need to insult each other anytime you disagree.  In the  
end, all involved would likely do better simply by showing their ideas  
out in code, i.e. _real_ patches.

Please don't compare what we do in a mission non-critical open source  
project for searching files, databases and other minutiae with the  
massive tragedy that was Columbia.  They are not even close to being  
on the same level and it is so completely disrespectful to those that  
lost their lives in that tragedy.
