Must we really go through this again?

Of course not. You can accept what I have to offer (or not) and stop bothering me when you please.

Reasoning is still the same as five years ago, when that bug was filed.
Looking at the number of files on Gentoo mirrors:

You know pretty well that the numbers for lzip would be much higher if the patch had been applied five years ago.

I am convinced that you're doing your users a disservice by not
distributing ed in at least one of the popular formats any more.

I can't see how distributing high-quality work for free and in a free format can be seen as a disservice to anybody.

On the contrary, I think you are the one doing a disservice to your users by stubbornly discriminating against the best format for the task of compressing tarballs.
