Seems to be a polarizing issue. Why don't you just shelve it for a few months and work on things that are more important to the general community. Right now is a super exciting time, so everyone has a strong opinion. We can always revisit it later when you've already accomplished your primary goals and everybody has a sense of how big of an issue this really is. Once the dust settles on the new site, I think things will be a little less contentious.
Otherwise, I think we'll all be blocked from each other by the end of this thread
