There was no vote amongst developers. A decision was made and there was 
no significant dissent amongst the developer body. Like most upstream 
projects, decisions about X result from gaining rough consensus amongst 
the relevant people. User viewpoints will be considered as part of this, 
but there's no concept of "This many people complained on the mailing 
list, therefore we are forbidden from carrying out this change".
