Then you likely also have enough experience to know that once the 
customer has made the decision you accept their call.  As a consultant 
you move on after having done your duty bringing the issue to light. 
The same applies here -- it's not changing, so you (generic you) accept 
it and move on.  The community has dealt with the issue by acknowledging 
that differing opinions exist and the BDFL makes the final call, which 
is certainly something the community accepts.  I imagine a PEP could be 
submitted suggesting change, and it hasn't been done because the outcome 
is certain.

Otherwise, there's always whython...
