Sorry, that's not the way it works. If you want me to do something, you
need to convince me that it's good. If that turns out to be harder than
doing it yourself, then do it yourself. Whatever. The only way you're
going to do that is to get a consensus on -newmaint or -mentors that
this is a good way fo doing things, which you didn't have last time.

FWIW, actually making sure you understand the objections raised by
everyone else, and making sure you have answers for them (even if it's
only "the current way doesn't handle that, and no one else has got
anything better") is a good start on that.

Consensus is a lot more achievable than you think, if you're willing to
put the effort in, and willing to admit that your initial idea might've
been stupid.

Please don't continue to Cc the bug until there's some useful to add.
