I didn't know about the first (because it's badly named and
undocumented, as well as totally irrelevant to the discussion in this
thread), but I was aware of all the other things here, and I'm not sure
why you'd think otherwise.

My perception here is that you're mostly angry that somebody else is
working on your code -- but that's pretty common.  Many people feel
proprietary towards code they've written.

Like I said before, the code solves (at least) two real problems, so I'm
not in favour of doing so.
