You've all made good points, and I agree with them.  When I saw the
nomination, I had some concerns due to the reasons I stated previously, but
what you have all said makes sense.  Thanks for the patient explanations.
In terms of this specific nomination, according to the review statistics
that John posted in the other thread[1], Ollie is an obvious candidate for
core, and has my support.

Thanks all,
