I think you're being too negative about the feedback. Yes, there was
a lot of static thrown out about losing the ability to tweak specs at
install time. I think that if you show up with a compelling proof-of
-concept implementation that does 80% of what people want, faster and
neater, they'll be willing to work out better ways of doing the other
Personally I had assumed you had gone off to write some code and would
come back when you had something ready to be tested.
