Though I mostly agree with you, I disagree with the notion that raising
the same thing several times is necessarily a bad thing. I'm living in
a country where the people directly vote about some decisions. We would
live in medieval times still - so to speak - if we hadn't voted about
the same thing many times. 10 years later, the (Pd-) world might have
changed a bit and suddenly implementing [initbang] in Pd-vanilla is
considered nice and pretty.. How can you know?

It seems as if the _license_ forces sane behavior. GPL forever!
