might be more polite your way, still having discussed all this already and
fearing another round of "but, but we need it" I'd go with the "standard

P.S.: You don't have to CC me, I'm subscribed and didn't request CCing.
P.P.S.: About the bet: I'd be surprised if Qt3 won't be orphaned, at least for a
time (i.e. until the bugs for the remaining users become painful enough).
