What if xarthisius, armin76, me and jer take 3 months off? What an evil
scenario :). The problem is when an architecture relies on a *single*
(or max 2) developers. You can't possibly claim that this architecture

retire someday or even lose their motivation. And then what? It would be
far too late to act
