Hi Mark,

I think this was a needlessly rude way to address the issue. Please  
try to keep things courteous on webkit-dev.

Your most important point, i.e. that 'bugzilla-tool land-diff' is  
really at "early adopter" maturity and not at "everyone should use it"  
maturity, was much more clear in your later, less snarky message.

That being said, now that you have stated your point, I'd like to hear  
Eric's feedback on the importance of these bugs.
