Well, I hate that solution because it counts on you playing Bad Cop, Justin.
Other people need to do their part.  We have lots of people voting to remove
the controls and only a handful stepping up to address the underlying issues
that the controls were meant to address.

An even worse example than Eagle: after 6 months in incubation, Impala still

  Impala is open source (Apache License), so you can self-support in
  perpetuity if you wish. However, technical support for those who want it
