This is true, but you can't jump on a train without a running start. ;-)

I appreciate healthy skepticism about the latest "new new new"
technology fad (and unreleased code) as much as the next person (perhaps
more, ask my colleagues!) but it's a question of tone and style in the
not-very-expressive medium of email, and it's about making new ideas
feel welcome.  

You have a powerful voice in this community; IMHO, it's more effective
to talk up the ideas you like than to squash the ones you don't. ;-)

with love,
