Bob Herriot has made an excellent observation that should really
be our guiding principle in moving IPP towards final consensus:

For those who were able to attend the Nashua meetings, you know exactly
what Bob is talking about here.

For those unable to attend those meetings--but have been actively
participating on the IPP list all along--then you would quickly
understand how easy it would be for IPP to "be back to square one"
if we start rocking the boat at this point.

The meetings in Nashua produced the first real agreement between
IPP and SWP camps.  Anything that might jeopardize that agreement
should be absolutely compelling, and not just a "tweak", IMHO.
