The obvious answer is `yes', because that is the hip thing to do. But
in reality that is not the case. Things are evaluated by maintainers,
and maintainers get to make the last choice.
The debate this week showed one thing:
*** Many people had opinions on a matter they did not know anything about ***
Many people stated their position based on very slim evidence, very
slim understanding of the problem.
Having a formal process where people with slim evidence, and more time
to argue than to read source code and understand the problem is the
wrong thing to do.
