Wow, this is even more radical than usual from you. Please refrain from
calling your co-hackers a "lynching mob". Be kind!
As for the debate, there wasn't one. The patch was posted with
technical reasons backing it, and so far all active maintainers have
+1'd it, some adding further technical reasons for it. I have seen no
dissenting technical reasons, and the politics to which you refer
weren't even mentioned until you and RMS brought it up.

If you do not have a technical objection to this patch, please refrain
