And if Richard wants it kept, I consider that just a previous maintainer's 
view to be considered by the maintainers.  This is not a difficult 
question about the exact boundaries of when it is appropriate for GNU to 
intervene in decisions made by individual package maintainers; it's a case 
for which it's extremely clear-cut that it's properly within the scope of 
package maintainers to make the final decision and would be improper for 
GNU to attempt to overrule such a decision.  The precise boundaries of 
appropriate intervention in individual packages may be worth considering 
elsewhere, but that's not relevant for this case.
