My list of 'bad mouthing' the existing working SEs and even
more so the NSF-lobbying SE researchers has little to do with
Robin and Tony's quest for 'provably correct' software. I want
working software and accept the occasional hickup. I also want
such software to be produced efficiently and with competence.
These are the bullets that I listed in my message and I stand
by those bullets.
