My assesement of Rob Levin's work differs from Martin Pool's. In an entry, mbp said that lilo did not show the code. I think lilo did, actually. He produced the OPN network, which is his "code", or something which you can examine and decide if it's worth anything.
I figure some people like it, so if they want to donate money to lilo for it, that's fine. If lilo wants to ask money, that's fine too. Personally, I see no value in OPN whatever, and I have no trouble tuning off discussions about it. I do not see how this can irritate anyone. We saw worse diaries at advogato than lilo's.
Now, the idea to swap handles for no reason is irritating. If someone are irritated by that, they should refrain from certifying rlevin. The raph's code takes care of the rest, like magic.
