As things frequently are with changes suggested by Lennart that other

accept differing opinions or modify his suggestions according to
comments he receives, no matter what.

And finally he will incorporate these changes into his distro and
claim that without them Emacs is too complicate or lacking essential
functionality. Which I don't think it's true.

When such endless and futile
arguments go out of control, it is quite possible that someone would
say "additional thought" meaning "not now, and I don't care when".

Funnily enough, that wasn't even the case in that discussion. IIRC,
most people commenting in the original thread *wanted* the
functionality. No one was suggesting it was bad, just underdesigned
and/or not cleanly implemented *for the moment being*.
