    Like everything else in life, it's a balance. If something is clearly
    half-baked and requires a bunch of post-rc1 changes just to be usable, a
    revert might make a lot of sense.

    It's questions of: how much further change is required, how invasive are
    those changes, how half-baked and incomplete is the feature really, what
    is the downside of a revert, ...
