Do you realise you've still not given a single good reason why we should
do that? You gave 2 reasons to do that:
- to enable users to use newly installed engines, for which we don't
need to remove filtering
- Because users want to see a long list of half-broken, unmaintained
engines that they wouldn't know which one to choose for their language

You filed a bug in the middle of this conversation:

With gems like:

You just listed 2 good reasons to keep a whitelist.

I filed a bug about letting users select newly installed engines, which
makes sense, but it's likely going to be invasive and for 3.8 only:

So you'd be better get started on proposing missing engines for the
languages you care about and know.
