Same old strawman again.

there is introduce this completely new feature thta may be good, 
but ultimately increase the language size and complexity and will 
come with its set of bugs, and there is introduce feature X, that 
will complete what feature A, B and C, that are already in, so 
they can actually provide what they are supposed to without any 

Putting the 2 in the same bag is the very reason why we get stuff 
added or rejected pretty much randomly and never get stable.
