Already explained the problems with that from multiple angles and a
multiple number of times on various threads both on and off the list.

Right now, I am not even requesting you to include my patch.

Well that was after a bout of abuses and vulgar remarks in #gnu.
People in #gnu are quite familiar with such behaviour from AMS. To
that he added a threat to commit my patch in any way he deemed fit.
That was a problem because the work was in a very initial stage and
would have severely hindered me.

And just to keep records straight, I was anointed a maintainer some
months back, when yours/Jeff's/Alfred's names were not on the
maintainers file, possibly due to a mistake. I offered to step down as
a friendly gesture after a conversation with Alfred on IRC. Having
this "we, the maintainers" versus "you" attitude is not what I
bargained for.

Saying that "we, the maintainers will decide" without ever giving a
sound reasoning is what has come from the other side. As I said
earlier I have explained my position a number of times from a number
of different angles to various people, including Karl and Alfred both
on and off-list.

If you have missed parts of that discussion then let me know. I can
try one last time. :-)
