I got the impression that it was mostly for "who is the maintainer?"
reasons, than deciding not to include something. (there are others such as
size-of-module, size-of-community, etc which makes it difficult to include
things like mod_perl even tho they are well-maintained)

I don't see any of these issues, though, with mod_ext_filter.

Yes, I know you removed the veto, but a meta-discussion about "what modules
go in and what stays out" is valid.
