I think the above is a bit out of line.

Stefan had points why he would not want to see this in TSVN, as one of
the key persons on the project I think that is his right (I would even
say his duty with regards to us users!).

If you want the support for your idea I would suggest you come up with a
better response to Stefan's arguments.
