I seem to remember the famous votes count voices, if one were to be called.

Nicolas, no one is in favor of this thing. It's an invasion of privacy
and has no way to be enforced. It will potentially deter contributions
and generate bias among reviewers if the patch states it's sponsored
nature. The last thing this project needs is more walls and more

You and you alone want this in, and everyone else so far doesn't. It's
not making it in.
