Really? My take is that it is too small and makes C++ frameworks 
ou of reach.

It is important to attract developers with a shared focus, then 
you need less management and can build on consensus.

All this talk of attracting more random developers is worrisome, 
more is worse if it prevents formation of consensus...

It is large because it has many overlapping features, the core 
functionality is not so big.
