Great choice!

I personally didn't have the pleasure of working with Doron but I'm 
looking forward to it. BTW I'm expecting the new BDFL to merge my Pull 
Requests within 30 seconds as well :P

Furthermore I'd like to thank you Pieter for building this amazing 
community and bringing all these awesome people here together. Thank 
you for teaching me and probably many others to work together in a 
never seen harmony (at least that's my impression) . I really enjoyed 
working on various projects the past few years that I've been part of 
this community.

I'll definitely miss you!


P.S.: I like to pick up olantonan's proposal on Hacker News to donate 
some money to your three children. Everyone who likes to act on that 
can send money to Pieter's PayPal account at ph at imatix.com. (FYI
