And I would HATE to see a new VP Incubator (and I think a lot of podlings would
agree with that). As a former VP Incubator I just wanted to acknowledge that
Justin has probably done more than any other VP around here. He's pedantic
at times and not of the "move fast and break things" mentality (like Greg) but
he's the reason I'm still willing to be on the IPMC (I don't have any
active podling
to mentor).

Greg, you've been very helpful on this thread -- but this email ain't so.
