That's not the point, is it? From this discussion is clear that the long
term solution is to use the BTS, but also that as of now the needed
support is not in place. So you can't simply veto the alternative
solution—unless you volunteer to add the needed support in the BTS. The
whole point of this whole sub-thread was estimating when the support
will be in place and, according to that, decide whether we should try to
get the "hack" in Squeeze or not.
