I'm not at all offended. In my role as dnsmasq-benevolent-dictator I get 
to have opinions about what's good to do in dnsmasq and what's not. I 
also get to hear arguments about what's good to do in dnsmasq and what's 
not, and sometimes I even change my mind (I did about the DHCP 
lease-change script, for instance, and forcing an address change when an 
already-configured host gets a static DHCP address).

I guess if a I make too many bad calls, there's nothing to stop a fork: 
that's the Free Software way.

I just happen not to have changed my mind about this. I'm still happy to 
hear arguments about it.
