This statement is pretty much self-contradictory. You are saying that 
average developer is very bad at estimating which behavior should be the 
default, yet you ("average developer") is vetoing features that users 
(myself and others) report to be very useful.

I don't have much time to spend on this issue, but I really think you 
should release mergemaster from strong maintainership lock and let 
community lead it future development, especially considering that you 
have confessed to not having much time to devote to it these days.
