That's not the right way to look at it. I'm using 2.6 heavily these
days, does that mean I get to decide what goes in it or not? No.
Everyone here, whether they are using 2.6 or not should weigh in, with
of course one BDFL to rule them all.
Same goes for 3.0. This is a community effort and I feel strongly
that we should work toward reaching consensus (that seems to be an
American theme these days). Make your case, we'll listen to the pros
and cons, decide as a community and then move on.
