well, you should have demanded it in public. if digia, err, tqtc want to 
be blatantly hypocritical, they sure can have the bad publicity they 
deserve for it.

that couldn't have flown, as without the project's leading contributor 
this can only be a vendor branch, pretty much by definition. also, given 
that you want/need to rebase the branch when tqtc finally releases the 
official source, this isn't really mainline material.
