-1 to unmerge - as others have said there are more good reasons to keep 
these projects merged as they are now, and to keep resolving differences 
in a respectful way.

-1 to blind dogmatism, to commit wars, and to unilateral decisions that 
claim to represent "this or that (large) community group". And 
emphatically -1 to name-calling.

+1 to iterative development, i.e. adding important new features when 
they are proven to work, and refactoring/improving on them later.
