I am not sure what course of action is best here, but this sort of
argument are not cogent because it is a fundamental misunderstanding.
This decision has no effect on any user's freedom.

The developers of a free program never have a moral obligation
to support any particular platform or interoperation, because users
who don't like their decision are free to change the code.

When the developers of a free program decide which features to
include, including which platforms or interoperation to support, the
question at stake is not what uses to _allow_, but rather which uses
to _facilitate_.
