  . Since those changes were made, 2.5 years ago, I heard _zero_
    complaints about this behavior; you are the first one.  By

I don't think that's true anymore. You should at least remember the bug
I posted relatively recently:

http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=13133

OK, so he is the 2nd one since June 2010.  How does that change the
picture?

Somewhat. It drastically lowers the odds of each of us being random crackpots. Validates the point of view, or whatever.

And since 5 is on the same order of magnitude as 2, the new opinion is statistically relevant.

Like I explained in the bug above, the current behavior creates problems
in edge cases. So a users can choose the values that "work almost right,
but not exactly".

Every behavior can be problematic in some edge cases.

Anyway, I'm not part to this argument.  I don't customize
scroll-conservatively (or any other of the scroll-* options).  I just
coded it like users who complained wanted.  Judging by the silence
since then, I'd say the change was mostly right.  But if I'm wrong,
someone else can come up and code something different.

I can understand if you don't want to work on it anymore.

If the stance on the issue has changed from "nobody wants that" to "patches welcome", I'm good, for now.
