The issue here is that an "in-house" solution has been proposed,
based on time-consuming work on the part of developers still
contributing here.
The PMC members should logically (?) favour any proper endeavour
that attempts to keep _this_ community alive.

For functionality that requires expertise not existing anymore around
here, it would be fine though, of course.
Thus I ask that we make a list of such functionality before dismissing
the local goodwill as if it didn't exist.
