I will not name names on a public list (Why do I feel like I am sitting in front
of a senate committee?)  Suffice to say, I believe that this code will end up
being committed with or without the veto in place.

We've been over this too much for me to explain again why the module
doesn't belong in the core.  If you want a GZ module, then create a
repository for external projects.  Create an external project, put it on
source-forge, host it yourself.  This doesn't need to be in the core.
