The fact that we are in the same company is pretty meaningless, as you
have seen.

However, we do have two core developers opposed, one for it, and three
users for it.  I am not voting because I can see both points.

I think we need more votes or a general core vote.  I am branding 7.0.3
now, so we have a little time for more votes, perhaps from other core
members.
