Those *are* the arguments against GLEP 55 that we've had so far. You're
adding in "someone already said no" (and the people who said that were
discussing nonsense like using xattrs in its place, which should
immediately invalidate anything they said on the matter) and "it looks
ugly, but not just because I don't like the people who proposed it,
honest" to that. The only reason this discussion is going on is because
some people still think it's in their advantage politically to say no to
anything seen as coming from "the wrong people".
GLEP 55 is simple, it solves all the problems we have (including the
version issue, which everyone is conveniently ignoring), it doesn't
require us to guess what's going to happen next and it can be
implemented immediately. That's a rather big deal.
