Even if we end up using some other system for uploading patches,
patchwork will still be useful for patches that end up sent
through email.  And, even if not all maintainers and frequent contributors
engage in updating the tracker, that's OK -- it works just the
same.  It absolutely imposes zero change on everyone's workflow.

So I can't imagine why would anyone be opposed.
