When developers are passionately opposed to a particular technology (and
not without reason here, I think,) they can be a bit blunt in expressing
it. The list of these goes on and on ... and while I certainly would be
more polite myself about expressing reservations about adding any more,
I'm not going to fault others for expressing their dissent. The way you
expressed your support seemed to me to gloss over the real cost of
adding a new package to the archive without any coherent argument as to
why this particular one was going to be no trouble at all (and/or worth
the trouble because it's so special).
