Well, you co-authored yada, didn't you?  Of course it sounds ideal to
you.  But don't you understand that other developers might not like it
as much as you do?

I don't and in fact, I have nothing to do with PHP whatsoever.  I'm
suggesting that you try to work with existing teams instead of doing
your own thing in your corner and then whining when it gets rejected.
Debian has more than 900 developers, a minimum amount of cooperation is
necessary...  it may not work as well as you want but hijacking other
people's packages is not a solution.
