Not so - there is no one editing this list to leave only the good stuff.

I didn't.  I'm just the diner waiting for the chefs to finish  
arguing.  By all means elect me but don't expect cordon bleu.  Don't  
even expect something edible.

And to stretch the analogy a little too far, I'm waiting until I'm  
sure the dish is perfected, the recipe is published and all the  
ingredients are readily available in my local supermarket before I  
start cooking.  Given the discussions here recently I don't think  
we're even close and I may be off to McDonalds to keep my stomach  
from rumbling.
