I'd also question whether that was the sense of the meeting.  My sense was 
it was quite undecided and even slightly tipped the other way.  But this 
is extremely hard to determine on a teleconference, absent a formal poll 
of attendees, so I'd be satisfied if the minutes merely stated that the 
topic was discussed but no formal position was taken.
