IAJACPW, but from my reading of the threads in January it seemed to me
that a bunch of points were gone through, a decision was taken to go
with .hg.

You, and only you, seem unhappy with the decision taken and then called
for an in depth analysis. I don't think that it'd be unreasonable to
conclude that this is because you're unhappy with the decision and you
want the decision to go to hg to be changed. I would ask you, if you -
or anyone else - were to produce such an analysis and hg was still
chosen, what would you request then?

On this point, I note that it's been around 5 months since you mentioned
wanting to see an analysis. No one else on the list seems to have cared
for one, with or without as much passion as you have. I encourage you to
produce one ASAP.
