uh, i usually avoid the no white crows logic.

maybe we should look at the time to process through iesg and the
reasons we can find.  i do not claim to know any answer, but of
course have silly perceptions based on my narrow little view of the
movie.  so it would be really good to have some actual data.  would
be nice if bill, harald, or someone with time could find a way to
get something real on which we could base a discussion.

good point.  most of what i hear is similar to crocker's "the iesg
is imposing it's view of quality," not the iesg is delaying
documents for reasonsa we don't understand.

of course, the data-tracker stuff should help make all this a bit
more visible.
