OK, so odd example, but yes I guess that does have some impact to the website
team.  I know that when I was reviewing that, I was looking at it from the
technical standpoint of 'should we be preferring x86_64 for installs' and not
from an asthetic point of view.  That is perhaps weasely, but true.

See how my brain works?  "Evaluate the technical aspects, leave the
non-technical stuff to people that know and care about it."
