Please ask for clarification and politely indicate that a change may
have to be reverted.  It will be promptly followed up.  Please don't
reach a conclusion.

Let me see!  

Can someone explain to me the reason why I might have added those in
first place?  Instead of the commit being wrong, is it possible that
changes were incomplete.  Do you have a solution for what that autoload
was trying to solve.

I am OK with the revert, btw.

There is a popular saying in Tamil which goes like "One who has sown the
seeds, will water the plants."  I have been watering the plants, you
know, whether I like it or not.

ps: I am not interested in a discussion.
