If your goal in life is to be the best in everything, you might achieve
that goal, but you will generally lose a lot of friends in doing so.
Being diplomatic about it is a necessity. When developing for DragonFly,
please feel free to do so with all your pride. When advocating
DragonFly, please do not bash everybody else.
If the above is unreasonable, I want no part in it.
