It's not fine. Not only the current version was based on my port without
crediting prior art[1] but also introduced a number of regressions that
don't exist in my port, all of which were documented in my reviews.

Besides, all consumers except Plasma are maintained by me. If you
disagree feel free to adjust Mk/ and/or help with
provides/requires integration.
