I agree, your summary isn't accurate: the world isn't that black and
white. To summarise a profound story I heard the other day:
"A wise man first dams up the river, before trying to empty the lake."
Unless we test new code, how do we make time to clean up the old code?
I certainly would not like to see SciPy stagnate because of hard-line
policy. My fear is, that unless we do something in order to protect
our scarce developer resources, we will see the same thing happening.
