I disagree that GRs have served us well.  I found developers were much more
likely to seek consensus during the period when the GR procedure was
unavailable, and that having a mechanism for forcing a majority view on
people has only served to draw out the tendency to do exactly that.

But I also don't agree that raising the number of seconds required is an
appropriate way to handle this.

So I am seconding none of these proposals.
