Care to provide a reference for that one?  I'm not aware that this
proceeded against a maintained objection.  

I certainly know it was controversial for a number of reasons, but never
did we 'vote it out' like this is being done, we tediously, painfully
worked to address the objections.  Then the resulting work was merged
without objection.

That we maintain the autoconf build in parallel is a testament to that
we have, to date, respected the views of our fellow team members, as we
work continue to address their concerns.

I hope that we as a team continue that fine example, which is why I'm so
surprised by this.  It is, as far as I still recall, the only
development decision proposed to be made this way, and I hope it isn't a
pattern we continue.
