Honestly, I think it’s the active distro maintainers who need to make this decision.  They have the pulse of their own communities and users, and can make the best decisions and compromises for their constituents.  I personally am not part of that any more, so I have no problem having no say (despite still having opinions :).

Well, why look for more dissent?  If you can align Homebrew, Fedora-et-al, Debian-et-al, and we already know what Arch has done, and the PEP authors are in agreement, isn't that enough to JFDI?  It couldn’t hurt to reach out to a few other distros, but do you think they will have substantially different opinions than what you’ve gathered already?
