Are you even reading what people are saying?

I don't like the mandatory(!) aspect of this, which it will eventually
become. There is this thing called "choice", remember?

The fact that you're still pushing for this current design *in the face*
of people pointing out serious design flaws with this makes me not
really trust you.

Yeah, I took a brief look at the code. It is overcomplicated.

If I were to review it properly, I'd ask you to split it in small
patchsets. Hell, I'm pretty sure you would do the same for code you
don't know if you were in my shoes.

Also, considering the complexity of this patchset, it doesn't have
a single Reviewed-by by an external party. If this were any other
submission, it would've been kicked to the curb a long time ago.
