This is actually a good point regardless of Bruce. The run down is this:

We have an individual that does stuff a certain way. That way works for
him. That individual is the one actually doing the work.

We have other individuals who would like to do it a different way.

I invite those individuals to do so. If there way proves to be more
efficient the community will move in that direction.
