As I've already indicated on the tracker, I'm completely saturated
with Stefan's qualms about a minor API addition and I'm not willing to
process anymore of them. Hence I won't respond to the bulk of his

But I still want to clarify that claiming that the feature was "added
without any major review" is outrageous and manipulative. Perhaps
Stefan thinks that an ElementTree code review not by him (but, for
example, by Eli, who currently maintains ElementTree) is not "major".
Well, good for him. His best chance to influence the development
process, though, is to contribute more, not harass active developers.
