Both ideologies have passionate adherents.  While Lucy was in the Incubator,
we had a long debate about this topic with myself as the strongest advocate
for one position and one of our Mentors as the strongest advocate for the
other.  (Lucy uses a Committer/PMC Member split now as a TLP, just as we did
while in the Incubator.)

The status quo seems to be that podlings tend to inherit their Mentors'
beliefs.  That may please no one, but I cringe at the thought of trying to
"resolve" this one way or another.  Consensus would mean one side losing after
a long, bloody battle.
