It may be in good faith. but it's not in good sense. There is a lot in the
background that made Rust's setup possible, and he's not bringing that to
the table, just assuming it'll somehow happen or that everyone else will
drop everything for the next few months and make it happen. And I feel like
he's being really pushy about committing already overworked people to this
--- and insisting that anyone opposed must have a hidden agenda or
otherwise cannot possibly have good reason to be opposed. It's not helpful
at all; it's basically a good way to stall ghc for the next few months at
