I'm not sure how this addresses any argument I've made, so perhaps you've

You're simply wrong, as even the most casual perusal of CVS logs or
simple comparison of releases will show. Or maybe my idea of a "major
overhaul" in an operating system is different from yours (going from ipf
to pf; moving to ELF; these are major changes to me).

It's an assumption of your own making, because you've deliberately
misquoted me by eliding the rest of that sentence. As well as the one
after it acknowledging that it was a slight exaggeration for effect.
Please, you must be at least ---><--- this tall to read misc. Although
lately it seems that rule has been relaxed.
