Yes this is part of opensource, people will do what they want to do, If I
want some feature in PHP Ill program it, the general direction of PHP should
be decided by a group of people yes but it gets to a point where everyone is
saying we should do it this way, that way or another way and in the end
nothing gets done, at the moment people see what others are doing and
question it if necessary, if its their extension then they are free to do
what they want with it.
