I'm not stuck with what I know.

The reason why I use the email workflow is not because "I'm stuck" with
it, it's because I've tried every approach out there, and they are *all*
inferior.

You tell me of an approach and I will tell you all the ways in which
it's inferior to email.

If some people want to use Gerrit, and/or Patchwork on top of email,
that's fine. You can use inferior approaches if you want, just don't
force the rest of us to stop using the superior approach.

Cheers.
