Until very recently, there appeared to be a resounding "NO"
from the BDFL himself to any thought that C1 might ever
be accepted.  It was rejected early and rather explicitly,
if I recall correctly.

Given that, it shouldn't be surprising in the least that no one
has put up their hand to do something which would appear to
be a waste of time.

Has anything really changed?  Would it now be correct to say
that C1 has a serious chance of being accepted if someone would
just update the implementation to the state and quality (?) of
the other two?
