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.
