OK, you convinced me.

Yes, it's not immediately obvious which way is better.  So let's keep
it simple and do what you suggest.

If I was to design a series of questions, they would probably be about
more "soft" aspects of the project, regarding things we are discussing
in other threads: how to get more people involved in Emacs core
development, contributing to GNU ELPA, etc.  Of course, nothing is
resolved with merely sending out a poll, but I imagine it would help
gauge the situation and make us feel more confident about which
direction to take.
