what's "good"? (Rhetoric question. *Please* don't answer. I *think* I
get your point.)

About consensus: oh please, that's frankly not possible. Once a
certain critical mass in community participation has been reached, it
is almost inevitably the case that there are digressions, branches,
and so on.

I agree that traits should have been optional. That said, I recently
made ContextS work in Squeak 3.10, and yon traits weren't painful.
Then again, maybe I just didn't have to touch the "right" places...
