If we take another heated example, Avalon, which was heavily criticized for 
its unhealthy community; IMHO, it was the "different 'common' goals" that 
created the flamefest and the so called personal conflicts and dislikes.

Overlapping in Scope is IMHO not enough reason to disallow a new community. 
That would be like IETF saying, "Hey, we don't want IMAP. Go to the POP guys 
and work it out with them."

We should allow different approaches to the same problem domain, and as you 
say "Let the Code Speak for itself."
