My comments, unless otherwise noted, are those of me, Paul, *not* the
ftpteam. I wasn't speaking for them, and I surely wouldn't do so without
saying I was.

This is my concern, as a DD, about an old fork, who's utility has been
superseded (IMVHO), and had many open bugs (as anbe points out), being
re-introduced (with nothing but good intentions) only to be removed
again, due to a dead upstream and tons of issues piling up. I don't
question the motives, nor intentions - just the workload in maintaining
something like this.

I'm not going to bother continuing to push this argument, since it's
none of my damn business, I was just trying to feel better about it.

For the record, I'd never abuse my role in the ftpteam to threten
REJECT to win an argument. That would be extremely scummy behavior, and
I'm not doing that now. Never have, never will.

As jmtd points out, I don't even have a package in front of me, so I
really can't comment yet.

I'll let this work it's self out, don't worry about me.

Much love,
