I agree with this last paragraph, notice the view of the distro is not the same
for all developers ;-)

The problem is not the level of maintenance, of course.

If you cut a tree it makes a lot of noise, but if you prune branch by branch
until the tree dies nobody will notice those branches falling. And in the end
you will also have more reasons to cut it, since it has no branches to support.
