Well, I would say that (a) the code that these options enabled doesn't even compile any more, and (b) Josh is no longer able to maintain it and agreed with removing the options. And since he was the author, I follow his opinions.

No, but since you make no effort to contribute, I generally don't worry about waiting for your input. Josh wrote the code, attends the weekly telecons, and participates in the decisions far more than you do. Hence, I pay attention to his input.
