I am not saying that the willingness of package maintainers should be
enough to have a package in. But technical reasons, implementation
or quality should guide the rejection of the package, not FESCo
willingness. FESCo of course can make a final decision, but only 
when there is indeed a disagreement and a side has a sound rational.
