No, I was just too busy - and by the time I dug myself out of the TODO
list, you'd already sent in your own patches.  Note that I have at
least tried to clean up your patch so it's at least a case of
extending an enum rather than extra arguments.

And I have at no point said I'm not interested in defining common
specs, all I've said is that I'm not interested in using your
interfaces as the common spec.  I'm more than happy to sit down and
work something else that's fresh.
