While a change like this is possible, it is going to be very very hard.

To change something so deeply ingrained into the whole `culture' of
being an open OS that welcomes everyone takes the sort of numbers I was

silly.  Change because there is a measurable advantage is, on the other
hand, quite more often a good thing :)
