It seems like you're interpreting the weasel words to make the whole
clause have no practical effect.  I don't think that we can really do
that.  You're saying that if my boss tells me not to contribute back
changes, that is enough to foil "best effort".  What if it is my wife?
What about the voices I hear in my head?  I still think that the
package can't go in main.
