I learned FreeBSD very much against my will for this project. I use PHP 
very much against my will for this project. I use Docbook SGML very much 
against my will for this project. I use CVS very much against my will 
for this project.

There are plenty of things that I think are plain outright dumb that 
this project does. However, because I want to contribute to this project 
and it is what the project (regardless if I agree) has deemed will be 
done, I do.
