This is not a decision you have the right or authority to make, Jonathan.

Everyone else, please calm down. Parrot architecture decisions have

participants in the project. Jonathan has expressed his opinion, and 
there are many legitimate reasons to disagree with his opinion. 
Discussions will continue.
