I have seen no logical explanation of *why* anybody supports this
policy. I've only seen vague hand-wavy statements like "people who use
real names are more reliable." Really? Where's the proof? I bet there's
a fairly large number of badly maintained projects on Hackage, and I bet
it has little or no correlation with the accuracy of the maintainers'
Even if it's true, what harm is there in allowing less reliable
maintainers to upload packages? So we end up with a few extra packages
that nobody uses. So what?
