Steve wrote essentially the same complaint a few months ago on a different point. I don't have much to say.

For lack of a secretary or equivalent, I think it's common sense that the people who make a decision document it and stand by it. In both of those cases, I believe the decision was and still is wrong (in particular, I agree with Steve's objections on Win32 threads), so I don't think I should be the one to document them.
