this is a figure of speech. it probably comes from the interesting
habit of ancient kings to execute the bringers of bad news.

what i meant to say is: daniel is trying to create a mechanism to
deal with companies reluctant to deal with open-source developers.
this open-source unfriendlyness is not his fault. he is only trying
to deal with it.

if this is an insult to you, the safest way is just ignore
everything i say.

The handles of a craftsman's tools bespeak an absolute simplicity,
the plainest forms affording the greatest range of possibilities for
the user's hand.
That which is overdesigned, too highly specific, anticipates
outcome; the anticipation of outcome guarantees, if not failure, the
absence of grace.
