Hopefully, Toshio mail shows that this wasn't the kind of 
decision you describe, something like a one way decision of
FESCo, but instead a reasoned decision taking into account
the time people could devote to the compat- package. I
don't know if it matters, but if FESCo can limit the 
packages one can add to fedora with technical reasons
accepted by the packagers themselves, then I don't think
Fedora is for me. And I hope that other contributors value 
their freedom of packaging whatever they want which is 
within the scope of Fedora.
