Discussing such matters publically is the only way the rest of the
developer community has any hope of judging whether a hijack is called
for.  Neglecting to make one's communications with the maintainer public
casts doubt on the justification for hijacking.  Not to mention that
communicating using official, public channels such as the BTS has been
known to get better (or at least different) results than trying to
communicate with maintainers privately.
