It's usually dangerous to make assumptions (unless you're talking
about changing the CVS source itself, in which case you don't need to
assume, just grep through logs and see that no commits have my name
;-). A more correct statement would be to say that they have
*different* experience than I do. Just because we disagree doesn't
mean that they're right and I'm wrong (or vice versa!) or that they
know more than me; it only means that they know something different,
just as I know something different from them.
