Thanks for your opinion but this is not the feature and case I was
talking about. No fly-by contributor, no one-time patch that could
indeed go via email (often private, untracked) as it happens now.

If you seem to like things codified: violating code of conduct by
using 'this madness', 'terrible idea' terms closes discussion with me
for _you_ because you paint things in awful colors before actually
understanding basics of the case.
Feel free to meet on IRC to get idea what's the case about before continuing.
