I understand your concern of this PEAR-DB x Metabase merger may open a precedent that will motivate others to come along with their components and propose mergers with other PEAR-DB components. I think that is a good precedent because it will let PEAR components implementations evolve, of course by keeping backwards compatibility to not break the applications of people that rely on the current implementation of PEAR components. Of course, like with PEAR-DB x Metabase, no component merger should happen if the interested parties do not agree with the terms of merger. If a favourable decision is made, it should be because the agreed merger terms were beneficial to the interested parties. Here interested parties means, the proposing authors and some PEAR representatives preferrably elected in a democratic process to evaluate proposals and make decisions regarding them. Currently there is nobody elected as PEAR representative but if I got it right it should happen some time soon.
