Oh, yeah, absolutely. That's one of the reasons why I encouraged people
on debian-devel to take this to the TC.
The heart of the problem for me is that this situation has dragged on for
an exceptionally long time. I remember seeing overflow of the same basic
underlying problem in arguments over pycentral and pysupport on
debian-devel quite some time ago. I think the main failing of how we've
handled this as a project is that we've let it drag on and fester for
probably at least a year longer than we should have.

Yeah, I think it's a great question.
