I'm sorry, I don't understand your attitude. You say you're interested in
contributing to V2. You're +1 on removing property-adjuster, I'm -/+0.
And you don't seem to care about removing it yourself, even though it's small
and easy change.

Maybe, you could clarify what kind of contributions you're interested in, and
how we can make architecture good enough to allow those contributions, except
by making a number of comitts, each of them makes a small difference. As you
put it, it sounds like you won't contribute anything unless it makes a big
difference, and a good architecture is definitely required to make a big
change. The problem if that as long as architecture is really good, all which
remains is writing various toolsets, and there's little place for big
