You shouldn't pick an implementation just because it's done. If it there
are reasons why it's not good enough to include, you shouldn't include
it just because "someone wrote the patch." "Nothing, until a better
implementation comes along" is always an option, and an important reason
why discussion should happen.

As I said, I think rather clearly, my idea is to discuss "what we want"
which is the first step in deciding whether we want to include a
specific implementation such as his. If it doesn't meet the overall need
it shouldn't be included just because it's done, especially if it has
disadvantages to existing use cases (which admittedly it doesn't as long
as you leave in the abundance of additional options).
