I agree that there is no urgent need to remove grub-pe2elf (although the
issue might come up essentially).  However, it's not so much a technical
problem as an issue of trust.

Committing code against the wish of maintainers should not be permitted.
Those who do it should lose commit access.  They are welcome to
contribute, but their patches will need to be committed by others.

I haven't seen any apology or explanation in this thread.
