That is no "decision" because it didn't occur here on the list.

As Branko notes, "voting" is not typically done in this community. There
have been only a few in its near-15 year history. I see no reason to change
that now.

For features in our codebase, they stay unless/until somebody vetoes that
feature for some reason. Then it is incumbent upon the person who issued
the veto, to work with the community to *resolve* that veto. That is
*forward* by fixing things to address the reason for the veto.

We use consensus rather than voting, so that we operate as a group rather
than vote-winners and vote-losers. If there is an actual problem that
somebody finds, then we operate as a group to resolve those problems.

The code is in trunk. It stays, subject to a veto.

No vote is necessary, nor should one be called for.
