The point of the wiki is to help users, not play politics. We do not
have quid pro quo relationships with any upstream developers. As
irritating as the hub devs' attitude may be, the tool they develop may
still be useful to our users, so there's no reason we shouldn't mention
it matter-of-factly and let users decide if it fits their needs. I don't
see this as an advertisement or recommendation.
