I agree with you here.

yeah, unfortunately p2p-related packages are written in several
different languages from C to python so it would be pretty hard for
maintainers to change their way of working cause too many differences
between their packages and the ones they would have to work on as a *team*.

Actually, I agree with your view about this and I think leaving
everything as it is, should be the best choice for everyone.

Thanks for the fast responses and for your suggestions,
