uau, I wish you had done as asked and not joined this conversation
until the voting was complete. I don't want to remove your svn access,
but you have been asked basically unanimously to revert your changes
(using svn cp to revert) and either recommit them in a way that
follows svn policy (using svn cp and separating functional changes
from cosmetics) or resubmit the patches for review prior to going
forward. Your email here makes it sound like you have no intention of
doing this.

If you clean up the mess, then I vote no to revoking your svn access.
But if all you plan to do is continue to argue, my vote is a big yes.

To make it concrete:
- svn mess cleaned up by 2007 Feb 27 00:00 +0000: my vote is no
- svn mess not cleaned up by 2007 Feb 27 00:00 +0000: my vote is yes

(cleaned up means to the specification of all the other developers,
not your own idea/interpretation of what's clean)
