At least in that case I was, for a long while, basically hoping for more
input, probably unwisely so. I think the 9.4 jsonb compressability thing
essentially was in a somewhat similar state for months; the proposed
patch was mostly there, but we didn't press ahead.  I think deadlines
and multiple people being blocked help tremendously with such issues.
They're often too complex for an individual and/or delayed due to lack
of concensus.

That's true. Which I think means that we'll need to be agressive in
threatening reverts in such cases. That wouldn't have worked for 3), but
in the other two cases it'd have been doable.
