I've seen many people, including, but not limited to people who develop, and
believe me, you're far away from being an unbearable and difficult person. My
particular issue is that I'm somewhat technology-centric; I can be annoyed with
some technical solutions rather than with persons who stand beyond them.

Couldn't agree more. This statement can be applied to many areas, though.

It might be your responsibility, but you don't have to suffer and deal with it
*alone*. Despite that sometimes I express things in a quite irritating and and
annoying manner, like all of us, I want to do the best and want to help. I hope
that the whole fact that I raised this whole discussion already clearly
demonstrates how much I care about the project and the team. And that "the
team" I mention obviously includes you.

I like this task, actually, and would like to complete it. I have problems with
some technical aspects, but the task is nice and lovely, despite how many
debates it involves. Also I wouldn't say I'm a suitable person for math-related
algorithms (you do remember that I'm a philologist, right?).

Most of all I like architecture-related tasks (architecture in a broad sense,
like designing APIs and data structures relationship). Perhaps the whole
problem is that, since I like designing architectures, I treat some moments in
a bit personal way, and our definitions of a good architecture differ, so this
naturally leads to debates. That's why I suggested to establish some common
understanding in a form of documentation (you didn't address this yet, if I'm
not confused).
