So your argument is that SD shouldn't have been merged either, because it
would have resulted in one scheduler over the other?

Well, there are two schedulers...it's obvious that "high level kernel
developers" needed to chose one.

The main problem is clearly that no scheduler was clearly better than the
other. This remembers me of the LVM2/MD vs EVMS in the 2.5 days - both
of them were good enought, but only one of them could be merged. The
difference is that EVMS developers didn't get that annoyed, and not only
they didn't quit but they continued developing their userspace tools to
make it work with the solution included in the kernel
