I knew I had seen this discussion before:

http://mail.scipy.org/pipermail/scipy-dev/2009-February/010975.html

Now, I'm not suggesting that my efforts in this are of any
significance whatsoever, but it is annoying to have contributed
something _upon_request_, and then having the exact same thing
reverted, even to applause.

If you don't want it, don't ask for it.
