It has nothing to do with my or Andrei's time, nor anything to do with whether
it is a quality implementation or not.
We should not be adding features just because we can. They need a compelling
case. This one does not have one. If such a case does emerge in the future, we
can look at it again.
I do not wish to tacitly greenlight projects that have little chance of being
incorporated. It isn't right to waste peoples' time like that. I don't derive
any pleasure from being Dr. No, but somebody has to do it, and it falls to me.
