That's been a very complex issue. Henrique will bring more context into here.
For now, it's worth mentioning the Portuguese Wikipedia community has been working on this antivandalism project http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikip%C3%A9dia_Discuss%C3%A3o:Projetos/AntiVandalismoin order to build alternative measures to deal with vandalism and inappropriate edits with a very small portion of the community reverting edits - considering the short and mid terms. They are already aware that even the return of emergency CAPTCHA won't be a definite measure (lasting no more than one year, as per what was agreed) and are handling to create other ways of preventing inappropriate content through new approaches. I actually believe that's a good idea and am happy to see there has been a lot of work on that - out of comfort zone, but also conscious of the current limitations in place.
