The *real* problem is that people keep bringing up topics (and even spell
them out in the bug tracker) without searching for existing discussions
and/or tickets first. That's why those who do such a search (or who know
what they are talking about anyway) close these tickets with the remark
"this has been rejected before", instead of repeating an entire heap of
arguments all over again to feed a discussion that would only lead to the
same result as it did before, often several times before.
