How weird. You're such a fixture in the Neutron community, I can't
imagine you not being there. I can't think of many people who made a
greater impact on both the code and the community than you. You'd
probably get a kick knowing that I point new team members to your
reviews as a positive example of deep, substantive review practices.
Even highly effective people benefit from some good amount of luck,
so, good luck to you Armando :)
