Most communication doesn't take place over email, so this logic doesn't
work.  In any case, I don't think any of this improves the situation
over what Stefan Monnier writes is likely to happen.

If we notice a problem, or someone else does, we are more than capable
to handle them then and there.

If there is a problem and the maintainer wont cooperate, then we can
always make our own fork of the package, possibly just adding a patch
removing the problematic bits, or just remove the package completely.
