The main problem was that the new stack would be imported just days
after the new TTY layer was committed, which caused a lot of resistance
(which makes sense, as debugging problems would become much harder). I
believe Alfred, who would be doing the import, went on vacation a few
Personally, since we have the new TTY layer for some time now, I think
it would be good if Alfred (CC'ed) would attempt to request this import
again, if his time permits.
