The main problem with this proposal is that it vaguely hints at a couple of
technical details, hide the discussion that happened about it, and then lists
a huge list of strong remedies without analysing the detailed problems one by
one, and without stating what problems the remedy do aim to fix, thus making
help coming from porters and other third parties more difficult to focus.
