Also, the vote was about the MSVC breaking version (B) vs. the original (O)
the result was people preferred O over B. It did not say they would prefer
O over all other solutions, and i did not claim that it did say this.

That is if one looks at the alternative now in svn (A) our knowlegde of the
majorities preferrance is.

(O) > (B)
(O) ? (A)
(B) ? (A)

Thus to comply with the vote would mean to revert (B) if its still in svn, as
well as not replace (O) by (B) if (O) were in svn. It does not say anything
about (A).
Thus there is also no problem with complying with the vote now in light of
the discussions and the actions taken due to the discussions.
If someone cares enough about the A vs. O case he can start a vote about it :)
