The lengthy discussions on philosophy and semantics have revealed beyond doubt that this list comprises a world-class congregation of experts... in syntax.
I don't want to be nasty, but I also don't want to wade through all this fluff, and I do want to read xml-dev.

Arguments about the nature of identity are best placed in environments where alcoholic beverages are available to grease the wheels, and xml-dev doesn't qualify. -T.
