It is uncalled for to say that there are a couple of problems with
the commit?  Am I misunderstanding what constitutes civility?

This was not some ruse to make you look bad.  The reason why I didn't
issue these comments before is that I wasn't aware of your commit message
and the rest until I examined it just now due to it having landed in
blead.  It's true that I missed an opportunity to review it when you
pushed a branch, in that I didn't look at the branch.  I was to some
extent trusting that your commit would reflect the understanding that
you had just expressed.

As I recall, I responded repeatedly when you challenged my objections.
I don't see any disengagement there.  The point where I stopped responding
was where you stopped promoting the misconceptions to which I objected.
You switched to a question of taste, on which I had already stated my
opinion, and I had nothing further to add in response to your contrary

>That would be the height of rudeness and most inappropriate.

Well, that's part of why I didn't just do it, but floated the idea first.
